Bee Chasing Champion Gymnast Off Podium Is Clearly Just Jealous

Well, that'll get 'em buzzing.

A bee chased 17-year-old American gymnast Simone Biles from her first-place spot on the World Gymnastics Championships podium in Nanning, China, on Oct. 10. It was her second consecutive all-around title at the competition.

Although gymnasts are known for their poise, Biles (understandably) couldn't quite keep it together with the bee after her and her championship bouquet.

Luckily, it seems Biles is taking it all in stride.

"Literally can't stop laughing," she tweeted Friday.

The accomplished young gymnast is only the sixth woman to take home two back-to-back all-around titles at the Championships, according to USA Today.

"It means the world to me," she told the AFP. "It's one of my favorite things to do, [competing] for a crowd. It's just really fun for me."

Biles can certainly be sure that spectators went home smiling.
