United States gymnast Simone Biles on Thursday (Wednesday, PST) became the first Olympian and first female athlete to get her own emoji on Twitter -- a goat wearing a red jersey and a gold medal, doing the splits.

Twitter launched the new emoji to honor Biles' "legacy, achievements and her epic usage of the platform," on which she is very active.

The goat refers to the acronym GOAT that stands for "Greatest Of All Time," commonly used to refer to athletes such as Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt and Swiss tennis player Roger Federer.
