Simone Biles is the black American gymnast who is making unprecedented records in the history of World Championships.
The talented gymnast was born in Columbus, Ohio on 14th March 1997.
Simon tried out gymnastics at the early age of 6 and by 8 she had started training. She started out mimicking other gymnasts and it was not long before she was invited by a gym and consequently started training and developing the obvious skill.
“While there I imitated the other gymnasts, and Coach Ronnie noticed. The gym sent home a letter requesting that I join tumbling or gymnastics.”
Ever since she has been a force to reckon with in all the World Championships she has attended.
A gymnastic observer has noted that “Biles’ signature event is the floor routine, an unparalleled display of her strength and stamina.”
Simon Biles is currently competing at the Rio Olympics. She is among the team representing the United States; and the only one of the 5-member team to compete in all four events.
Simone Biles has become one of America’s top gymnasts of all times. She literally wins in almost all the competition she’s entered for.
As a matter of fact the 4 ft 8 tall 19-year old is currently the most successful woman in the history of World championships. Her physical and mental strength leaves all stunned and wondering how she does it.
“We have not seen a gymnast like this since Nadia Comaneci.”– Dave Lease, sports writer and editor.
Simone Biles is a 3 time all-round world champ and America’s best athlete at the moment. She has amassed as much as 14 medals; 10 of which are gold. She earned 10 of them in as short as 3 years (2013-2016).
In the history of sports, this African American youngster is the first female gymnast and the second female in any discipline to win 5 gold medals at a single Games.
