American gymnast spots bee on podium, freaks out
American gymnast Simone Biles was accepting her gold medal at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championship in Nanning, China, when a fellow gymnast warned her that the bouquet of flowers she had just received had a bee in it, and that is when everything went crazy.
Despite her superior athleticism, Biles could not seem to shake the bee, even when she jumped down from her place atop the podium.
After some running around, the defending all-around champion stepped back onto the podium and, after another brief scare, regained her composure long enough to take some photographs with her competitors.
