Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles is taking a break from training to return to competition by cheering for someone else. 

She's working Sunday as an honorary cheerleader with her hometown Houston Texans, and yes, she's all decked out complete with pompoms for the Texans' game with San Francisco. 

Biles won four gold medals and five total during the 2016 Summer Olympics and recently hired a coach. But she took a break for her newest role, which did involve some preparation.
 
"I've been training gym my whole, entire life so I think this is a little more difficult,'' Biles said before kickoff. "Just because I only had two practices before going out today."
 
 
The 20-year-old took a well-deserved sabbatical following her triumphant two weeks in Brazil, where her four golds tied and Olympic record for the most won by a female gymnast in a single Games. She competed on "Dancing With The Stars," released an autobiography and crisscrossed the country while serving as a spokeswoman for everything from mattresses to athletic apparel.
 
Being a cheerleader isn't easy either. Biles apparently kept forgetting to shake her pompoms during practice. 
 
"It's so different,'' Biles said. "Every time I feel like they're going to shake themselves when we do dances. And they're like: 'Simone your pompoms.' And I'm like: 'Oh yeah, I do have to shake these.' But it's a lot of fun."
