Watch Simone Biles win a gold medal in a homemade flipbook
Simone Biles took home her fifth gold medal of the Rio Games with a spectacular routine in the women’s gymnastics floor final on Tuesday night, capturing the attention of millions across the country.
Among them was an illustrator who creates flipbooks and goes by “The Flippist.” He took a bunch of blank business cards and recreated dozens of still shots of Biles in colored pencils, making a book when combined.
Check out the accuracy in the videos below.
I gots me a full blown case of Olympic Fever this past week!!! I've never been a huge sports guy, but I'm a big softy and just love the whole world coming together (for freakin' once) and giving their all! The U.S. Women's Gymnastic team has been killin' it! Way to go @simonebiles and friends! Sorry I couldn't resist the 'flip' pun on the cover page.
You know you’ve made it when you’re a flipbook. Congrats, Simone.
