World Series: Olympian Simone Biles backflips, then throws out first pitch before Game 2

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles put her own unique twist to it when throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the World Series.

The Houston Astros invited their hometown hero gymnast and four-time Olympic gold medalist to Game 2 at Minute Maid Park. Biles did what she does best and dazzled the crowd with a standing backflip before firing the ball over the plate.

Anyone here wish to see if they could do that?
