The little girl’s mom, Jessica, told Storyful that her daughter "loves watching the Olympics" and her favorite sport to watch is gymnastics.
A young girl in Rhode Island was inspired by the Olympics, too. In a video posted on Instagram, the little girl, dressed in a princess dress, put on a gymnastics floor routine in her living room.
She jumps around the floor, mirroring walking on a beam before forward rolling and sticking the landing.
The video posted by @MetsHomeRunGuy was captioned "Floor routine on point. Future Olympian."

Since Biles withdrew from competition on Tuesday, professional athletes and public figures have sent messages of support. Michael Phelps, who was open about his own mental health struggles during and following the Olympics, said watching Biles struggle "broke my heart."
"Mental health over the last 18 months is something people are talking about," Phelps said. "We’re human beings. Nobody is perfect. So yes, it is OK not to be OK."
Whether it be through bravery or competition, the 2020 U.S. women’s gymnastics team has left its mark on the world and maybe even inspired future Olympians.
