Simone Biles Breaks Up With Gymnastics Coach Of 11 Years
The post-Olympics heartbreak has hit Simone Biles in the most savage way possible -- she's breaking up with her gymnastics coach of 11 years.
Yep, it's time to call it a day for the 19-year-old Olympic gold medalist and her longtime coach, Aimee Boorman.
She's been her coach since she was 8 years old and is no doubt the driving force behind her Olympic success.
With a heavy heart, Boorman told PEOPLE,
We were both sad, but [Simone] understands that life moves on and she knows that if she plans to continue in gymnastics… I will always be willing to coach her. I will be there as a mentor. We're texting each other every couple of days. We are both happy for each other. We are both close and we always will be.
How much does that sound like a proper breakup!?
But fear not: Their parting isn't down to differences between the pair. Boorman's family is relocating to Florida, and that simply makes it impossible for her to coach Simone as regularly.
*Wipes away tear*
We're here for you, Simone Biles.
