Simone has been busy training for the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, which were postponed last summer due to the pandemic, but it seems as though she has been ready for this vacation for a while.
In January, she showed off her athletic physique in a series of racy swimsuit shots, leaving her fans stunned in the process.

The gymnast has been hard at work training for the upcoming Olympics at her home in Houston.
Last year was a difficult one for Simone, who told Vogue that she felt ‘torn’ and ‘broken’ by the news that the 2020 Olympics had been postponed. Her home gym was also temporarily shut down due to the pandemic before it reopened in May.
The athlete felt adrift without her rigorous training schedule that has become a trusted emotional outlet for so many years.
‘You go to work out and you release endorphins. You get any anger out. It’s kind of our oasis,’ she said in an interview featured in the magazine’s August issue. ‘Without that, you’re stuck at home with your own thoughts.
Ready to go: Simone is currently in training for the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo after having swept the medals at the 2016 Games
Confident: The athlete has taken time out of her busy training schedule to share several saucy images of herself in recent months
True love: Simone recently gushed about her boyfriend Jonathan (pictured together at Christmas), describing him as ‘a real man’
‘I’ve kind of let myself live in those thoughts, to read more deeply into them. At the gym, it’s a great distraction, so I never really live with my thoughts.’
In addition to the. pandemic having a huge impact on her training, she also had to deal with the end of her first serious relationship with fellow gymnast Stacey Ervin Jr.
The couple split in early March after three years together, with Simone admitting that while she struggled with the break-up, she knows that it was ‘for the best.’
Simone is now dating fellow athlete Jonathan, whom she recently paid tribute to in an interview with the Today’s show’s Hoda Kotb.
‘He’s a real man. I just, I love him. We have a great time together,’ she said.
‘Our personalities match right up. We have the same sense of humor. And he’s just great. He’s an athlete, too, so we really understand each other and I think that’s why our relationship has been seamless.’
