Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian Hosted a Mini Olympics From Their Home

Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian

Serena Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, have found a fantastic way to keep themselves (and us!) entertained as they isolate at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

 

With athletic events on hold for the foreseeable future, Williams appears to have found a great outlet for her fiercely competitive nature: a toy gymnastics set where you can simulate rotations on a horizontal bar and try to stick the dismount. The couple uploaded a video of themselves playing with it, which was made even better by the “Chariots of Fire” theme music playing in the background and Ohanian’s brilliant Olympics-style commentary.

As Williams pushes the button that makes the plastic figure spin around the bars, we hear Ohanian whisper-talking, in that perfect sportscaster way, comments like “The U.S. Olympic team has really fallen off since Simone Biles left and was replaced by this,” and “Quite the terrible dismount, probably broke a few bones on that,” as Williams’s toy fails to stick the landing.

But then…VICTORY! Just as Ohanian calls the performance “amateurish,” the GOAT gets it done, and they both go crazy cheering, as daughter Olympia looks on in the background. “Accomplished a lot with @serenawilliams this weekend… @simonebiles please help her,” he wrote in the Instagram caption.

Reader: I cheered too—and wished I had that toy in my apartment. As a huge sports fan, I’ve definitely missed watching games and matches on TV—and this little moment briefly filled the void. Also, how unsurprising is it that it didn’t take Williams long to completely dominate a toy sport? She is truly the best.

I was not alone, as people chimed in with comments like, “I needed this during quarantine,” and, “LMAO what am I watching and why can’t I stop. Riveting 😩😂😭.”

The Tokyo Olympics may be postponed until July 2021, but let’s hope the competition at Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s house is just getting started.

LOVELY Serena Williams explains why her mother is a true legend

Serena Williams is a true tennis legend. The American sensation captured the imagination of the people around the world not only because of her huge success on court, but also because she keeps on inspiring as a role model.

The 38-year-old is currently self-isolating with her family to try to weather these difficult times dictated by the Coronavirus outbreak.

Serena got to social media to explain that you do not need to be a supreme athlete (like her) or a celebrity to become a legend, but legends are all over the world.

In a heartfelt video, Williams reveals why her mother is a true legend for her not only for the decisive inputs she received from her during her tennis career but also and especially for what she did for her when she was little.

This was her message on Instagram: “It has nothing to do with fame and notoriety. There are legends all around us. For me, my mom has been a legend in my life since the start. I want to know about the legendary people in your life and how you’re celebrating them. We’ll be sharing more legendary love this week on S by Serena, and I challenge you to shout out the legends on your own social and tag”
