Ben Zurawski, a custom cartoon flip book innovator, recently created this fantastic frame-by-frame drawing of Olympic gymnast superstar, Simone Biles.


Biles made history on Sunday night as the second gymnast to lead the U.S. Olympic team into a closing ceremony and the first-ever female gymnast to be selected as a flag bearer for either an opening or closing ceremony.


"It's an incredible honor to be selected as the flag bearer by my Team USA teammates," Biles said in a statement.

Biles, who made her Olympic debut in Brazil this month, became the first American gymnast to win four gold medals at a single Olympic Games and one of only four women to accomplish the feat in Olympic history. The 19-year-old also earned a bronze medal in the balance beam final, bringing her Olympic and world-championship total to 17 medals.
