Simone Biles: Gymnast, Olympian, Airport Temp

Highly likable Olympic gymnast Simone Biles played at being an airport employee on Tuesday at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

To the surprise of passengers and unsuspecting crew members, the four-time gold medalist made flight announcements over the P.A., took boarding passes, and even directed traffic out on the tarmac—all part of a promotion for United Airlines, which sponsors several Olympians.

We're not sure what the point was supposed to be, but at least it gave travelers a thrill and generated some fun social media posts as well as this report from a local news outlet.
