Simone Biles Puts Team USA In The Lead After A Visit To The ER For Kidney Stones

Posted by

Simone Biles has once again proven just how awesome she really is. The Olympic gymnast has had many great accomplishments, but the 21-year-old has always seemed very humble about all of her great success. Biles put on an incredible performance at the World Gymnastics Championships in Qatar, after a trip to the ER. After a CT scan revealed a kidney stone ( a hard mass formed in the kidneys, typically consisting of insoluble calcium compounds; a renal calculus), the gymnast left the hospital to continue in the competition.

Simone couldn’t take pain medication, due to drug tests, so she suffered through the pain to put Team USA in the lead. She secured the highest scores on floor exercise, uneven bars, and vault. Biles will more than likely secure positions in all four final rounds. This is an accomplishment that hasn’t been matched since Simone competed back in 2013.

Hilary Duff Says Drinking Her Placenta In Smoothie Form Was “Delightful”

Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma welcomed their baby girl, Banks Violet Bair, on October 25th —  since then, we have gotten some adorable glimpses of their adorable newborn with pictures posted on Instagram. Now the 31-year-old is opening up about her experiences with a newborn, and gave in detail of how she consumed her placenta.


It’s been 10 days since Duff gave birth to her daughter, she recently made an appearance on the Informed Pregnancy podcast, where she admitted to consuming her placenta in a smoothie.


“It was the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had. I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was 10. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.” Hilary, who had a drug-free natural birth, couldn’t take her entire placenta in just one smoothie so to avoid taking pills, she has been drinking the rest of it in the form of ice cubes.
