Simone Biles and her husband, Jonathan Owens, are embroiled in a friendly battle of the athletes.
Simone Biles, the most decorated gymnast in history, needs no introduction. With a record-breaking collection of Olympic gold medals, world championship titles, and a reputation as one of the greatest athletes of all time, Simone has carved her name in the annals of sporting history. Her grace, strength, and unparalleled skill have earned her fans from every corner of the globe.
On the other side of the athletic spectrum stands Jonathan Owens, a formidable force in the NFL. As a safety for the Green Bay Packers, Jonathan knows the grueling demands of professional football all too well.
The spark that ignited this friendly rivalry between Simone and Jonathan was the age-old debate of who’s the better athlete. It’s a question that sports enthusiasts have pondered for years, and in the case of this power couple, it’s a source of playful banter.
During a recent interview on Peacock’s 2023 Back That Year Up, Simone candidly shared that she and Jonathan often engage in heated discussions about their athletic prowess.
“I think we’re good at our own sports,” Simone explained with a grin. “We’ve tried to pin each other against difficulty, ability, and all that stuff. So, at the end of the day, gymnastics is harder — if he agrees or not.”
“We fought over it a couple of times, and then we vowed once we got married, we wouldn’t talk about it again,” Simone confessed. “But it keeps coming up every time. He has done my workout in the gym, and he could barely do it, and then I went to their NFL workout, and I crushed it,” she continued.

He playfully referred to himself as “the catch” in their relationship, sparking a flurry of reactions on social media. Some fans defended Simone as the most decorated gymnast in history, while others humorously admitted they had to Google Jonathan.
Despite the social media chatter, Simone and Jonathan remained unbothered. In a heartwarming display of unity, they celebrated Christmas in matching pajamas, showcasing their love and resilience in the face of public scrutiny.
