Simone Biles Signs With Nike, Immediately Gets Invited By Shawn Johnson To 'Swoosh Party'

After what one can only imagine was a fierce battle between apparel companies, Nike has ultimately emerged victorious in the Simone Biles sweepstakes. The three-time world champion gymnast announced her deal with the brand on Tuesday with a photo from its Portland location.

Shawn Johnson, someone who knows a thing or two about winning Olympic medals in gymnastics, wasted no time in welcoming Biles to the Nike family. And invited her to a, ahem, swoosh party. IS THAT A THING?

I'll be having a "I have to pay for my own sneakers" party later this afternoon if anyone wants to join.
