Other athletes who have already received their own GOAT emoji include football players Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
The “GOAT” idea has been around since 2019, when she began wearing a goat design called “Goldie” during the U.S. Gymnastics Championships. She showed up in 2021 at the same competition wearing custom-made leotards with silver rhinestones that created the shape of a goat head.
“I don’t think of myself as the G.O.A.T. and that’s not why I wear the goat on my (leotard),” she added. “It was kind of a joke in the beginning.
I wore one in 2019 and it was just funny because the haters were so upset. What we did is to kind of tick them off even more. So I was happy because it’s like good, now you guys are annoyed because you’re annoying me.”
