Simone Biles continued her media tour promoting her book, “Courage to Soar,” by teaching Stephen Colbert to stick a landing on Thursday.

Biles showed Colbert, who has Olympic history himself, the difference between male and female gymnasts at the end of routines.

Unlike women, men “scream like crazy,” Biles said.

Colbert then hopped off one step, saluted, high-fived Biles and let out a masculine roar.

Colbert also asked Biles how high she flies.

“Probably twice my body length,” Biles said. “I’m not very tall, so maybe it’s like 10 feet.”

Colbert also brought up the balance beam, asking if Biles felt pain when she has to scrunch her toes up against the four-inch-wide apparatus to keep from falling off.

“Sometimes I just want to jump off a beam and curl up in a ball,” Biles said, “but I don’t.”
