Having practiced gymnastics since the age of 6, Biles has grown and worked hard to become a 5-time Olympic medalist and fourteen-time world champion.

Born originally in Columbus, Ohio, Simone and her siblings were in and out of foster care as a result of their parent’s drug and alcohol addictions.

When she was 6, Simone and her younger sister, Adria, were adopted by their maternal grandparents.

Her grandfather, Ron, and grandmother, Nellie, took the girls in as their own, and even suggested that they call them “mom” and “dad.” Speaking to Texas Monthly, Simone recalled the moment that her parents permitted for their titles to be changed: “She said, ‘It’s up to you guys. If you want to, you can call us mom and dad.’ I went upstairs and tried practicing it in the mirror—‘mom, dad, mom, dad.’ Then I went downstairs, and she was in the kitchen. I looked up at her and I was like, ‘mom?’ She said, ‘Yes!’ ”

Biles first tried gymnastics at just 6-years-old as part of a day-care field trip, where the instructors saw her potential and suggested that she continue with the sport. She then went on to enroll in an optional training program at Bannon’s Gymnastix.

With continual training from her coach, Aimee Boorman, Simone went on to compete in, and win, fourteen world championships. Despite her small 4 foot, 8 inch frame, Simone’s explosive energy, dazzling performances, and outstanding gymnastic abilities made her larger than life and quickly drew in attention from all over the world.

In 2016, Biles won four gold medals at her first Olympic Games in Rio: 3 individual and 1 team, tying her with 4 other gymnasts for the Olympic record for the most gold medals won by a female gymnast in a single game.

Simone was becoming burnt out, and she took the decision to step out of the gym for twelve months, telling The Guardian that “I was so physically exhausted that I needed the break. Mentally and physically – I had earned it.”

Simone has admitted in the past that gymnastics was beginning to become toxic to her and that there were times when she found herself dreading going to the gym to train. “I go to therapy to help with that because there were times when I didn’t want to set foot in a gym. But am I going to let that keep me from my passion, and the goals that I still have? It’s just another bump you have to get over.”

The 2018 World Championships were Biles’ grand return to competition after her year out and, despite a few falls during her performances, she came out on top.
The margin of victory, even accounting for Biles’ first falls in more than sixty career routines in the Olympics or world championships, marked the largest of her 4 all-around world titles.

At the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championship in Kansas City, Missouri, the 5-time Olympic medalist made history by becoming the first-ever gymnast to land a double-twisting, double somersault dismount from the balance beam in a match.

The very next day, Biles went on to become the first woman to perfect the triple-twist, double-flip move in her first pass on floor.

According to Team USA, if Simone replicates the double-double dismount from the balance beam at the international meet in October, the move will be named after her – The Biles.

Commenting on her incredible victory, Simone said: “It wasn’t as good as in training. I’m just happy that I landed it because I feel like after night one, my confidence got shot down. So I was really worried about it going into today, that’s all I could worry about. So I was really happy.”

And us mere mortals are not worthy to even compare ourselves to her, as this Twitter user so finely put it.

Then Simone spoke out on a much more controversial issue.

3 years ago, USA Gymnastics trainer Larry Nassar was jailed for his sexual assaults against a series of young athletes.

​The horrific story is told in Netflix documentary ​Athlete A.

But for Biles, this isn’t enough.

And she spoke out on the subject.

“It’s far from over.”

“There’s still a lot of questions that still need to be answered.”

advertisement

“Just who knew what, when? You guys have failed so many athletes — and most of us underage.”

“You guys don’t think that’s a bigger problem?”

advertisement

“We bring them medals. We do our part.”

“You can’t do your part in return? It’s just, like, it’s sickening.”

And Biles has said she wouldn’t let her own daughter compete in US gymnastics.

“Because I don’t feel comfortable enough, because they haven’t taken accountability for their actions and what they’ve done.”

advertisement

“And they haven’t ensured us that it’s never going to happen again.”

We can’t say we blame her.

But what’s the latest Biles news?

Well she has made history YET again!

advertisement

She landed what they’re calling the hardest vault in in women’s gymnastic history… EVER.

Simone was competing at the 2021 GK U.S. Classic when she attempted what’s called a Yurchenko double pike.

advertisement

It’s a seriously dangerous vault.

And if done wrong it could be career ending… But Simone smashed it.

The judges assigned a difficulty value of 6.6 and she scored a 9.5 for her execution.

Speaking about the vault, Simone said:
To finally just put it out in a competition was quite nice, I know it’s not the correct value that we want, but I can still do it, so why not show off my ability and athleticism.
