Simone Biles has reunited with her family following her participation in the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Biles is back at home in Texas after spending several weeks in Tokyo for the Games and stopping by New York City for press appearances.

She reunited with her parents, Nellie and Ron, yesterday as they met her at the airport.

Biles shared her excitement of being back with her family on Instagram.

Posting two photos of her hugging her parents as an audience who waved American flags behind, Biles wrote: "Houston, I'm home. Thanks for making sure I didn't have to wait one more minute to see my family @united."

And after sharing her post online, people have taken to Instagram to praise her.

"Simone, go fill your heart with your family, your guy, and your pups. You deserve all of the peace, happiness, and relaxation!" one person wrote.

"The GOAT HAS LANDED. her beautiful parents blessing on this family," added another.

"Congratulations! No Olympian has ever made me so proud. Thank you for your leadership and for sharing your unparalleled excellence with the world. And your example of respect for yourself and your mental and physical health when you know something wasn't right. I hope you get to really rest and relax as much as you need now," wrote a third.


Biles' homecoming follows her difficult experience at the Games.

Despite arriving with the expectation of achieving a gold medal, Biles pulled out midway through the all-around team final after scoring her lowest Olympic vault score in the opening rotation.

She then withdrew from several of her competitions, later telling reporters that she has "to focus on my mental health."

"Whenever you get in a high-stress situation, you kind of freak out," she said. "I have to focus on my mental health and not jeopardize my health and well-being. It just sucks when you're fighting with your own head."

Bile took home a bronze medal in the beam and a silver medal from the team competition.
