Gymnast Simone Biles has been bagging gold medals in the ongoing 2016 Rio Olympics games. Could her “Brazilian boyfriend” her inspiration to success?
The 19-year-old Queen of Gymnast Simone Biles has already admitted that 22-year-old Arthur Nory Mariano is her boyfriend when she met him at the athlete’s village in July ahead of the Olympics opening.
Simone Biles posted two photos of them together while hugging in the field, with the caption, “my Brazilian boyfriend” together with a heart emoji.
The young stunner also exchanged flirtatious Snapchat with the hunk athlete as she zoomed in Nory Mariano while they were at the dining hall at the opening ceremony, People said.
Fans began speculating that there is something going on between them as Simone Biles captioned it with, “Babe.”
Then, the rumors heightened as Nory Mariano replied with a photo of them together with Laurie Hernandez, with the captioned, “my babe.”
Just after Simone Biles won gold and Nory Mariano won bronze for floor exercise competition, the rumored couple posed for cute photos together.
Simone Biles said in her caption, “congrats, so proud of you.”
The two began being close last year when they competed at the 2015 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow.
In an interview with Us Weekly, the rumored couple denied their relationship, with Nory Mariano saying they are just friends.
He said, “We’re just friends, like when we see each other in competition and we text each other. [We met] in competition, at the World Championships in 2013.”
Simone Biles rumored boyfriend Nory Mariano even planted a smooch on the gymnast stunner in one photo.
