Move over FootGolf; there’s a new mashup sport sweeping the nation. Globetrotter Gymnastics!
Ok, so maybe it’s not sweeping the NATION, but it’s certainly a hit on the web.
In a new video posted by the Harlem Globetrotters, the world famous basketball team recruits gymnastics star Simone Biles, and in return, the pint-sized Olympic champion shows forward Hammer Harrison some of her moves on the horizontal bars, rings, and balance beam.
The 4’9” Biles couldn’t contain her smile as she donned the trademarked Globetrotters jersey and headband while attempting a slam dunk…on a mini hoop.
@simonebiles is a 4-time Olympic gold medalist 🥇 but is she Globetrotter material?!

At 6’9”, Harrison can do just about anything on the basketball court, but when he tried the balance beam, he was overcome with fear.
“This is the scariest thing I’ve done in my life!” he said while walking backward on the beam.
The video was a dual promotion for the Trotters and Biles as the hoops squad is visiting Houston in July for two games at NRG Arena, and the Magnolia City is home to Simone’s World Champions Centre gym.
