Since Simone is BFFs with the reigning champion Laurie Hernandez, she got some pretty great advice when it comes to what she’s in for.
“[She] said to take care of the blisters and if your feet hurt to tell Sasha, because if you don’t take your shoes off, they will hurt the next day,” Simone shared in a new interview — but she didn’t tell him! Eek!
“I didn’t tell Sasha, and my feet are burning today,” she admitted.
Another piece of advice Laurie gave to Simone was to “have fun with it and to let my personality shine and that she’ll always be a text away.”
