Gymnast Simone Biles is the greatest to ever do it. If she hadn’t already earned that title unanimously, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics was the stage to prove it to the world. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 outbreak put those plans on hold, but the 23-year-old gymnast is still finding ways to amaze us.

For the last couple of weeks, the Handstand Challenge has taken social media by storm. It was originally started by Spider Man: Far From Home actor Tom Holland and accepted by fellow movie co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, according to CNN. The goal? Put on a t-shirt on while doing a handstand. It is much harder than it looks.

Well, the Olympian took it a whole new level by taking off a pair of sweatpants while doing a handstand.

Think long and hard about the last time you did a handstand. If it was years ago, this would be impossible. If you did one yesterday, this would be impossible. Keeping your balance for nearly 60 seconds is already ridiculously hard, but to then take off a pair of sweatpants while upside down? Come on. That’s not even fair.

USA Gymnastics star Simone Biles, the most decorated gymnast in American history, including 19 medals from the World Championships, pulled off the merely unthinkable.

There are no words for what Simone Biles just accomplished, but it definitely put shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal to shame.

Holland also challenged actor Ryan Reynolds and even fellow Olympian Lolo Jones joined the fun on the latest social media craze.

Although Biles doesn’t exactly follow the rules of the challenge, her improvised version is nothing short of legendary. During quarantine, taking off sweatpants can be chore. She did it upside down.

There is one question that remains: Did Biles actually do it in one take?
