It was August 9 of 2016, the whole world were waiting to see a new Olympic champion for the event 'World Artistic Gymnastics', and a young gymnast was trying to include her name in the list of the Gold Medalist's. It was Simone Biles, the most decorated American gymnast with more than two dozen Olympic and World Championship medals to her name.

 

Simon demonstrated her abilities as a gymnast at her age of eight. One day she visited a gymnastics center on a field trip with her day care group,and become interested. She tried to imitate other gymnasts. Later the gym authority sent a letter to her home requested to join tumbling or gymnastics.

 

Simone started trying as a level 8 gymnast in 2007, and in 2011 she established herself at the junior elite level. It is a level for the 11 years to 15 years aged girls, and only athletes at the National Team level are called 'elite gymnasts'.

Biles has learned how to truely enjoy competing against herself. It is rare such a dedicated athlete like Simone. When other athletes go for a vacation, she sat out a season and then sprang back into action.

 

Biles is a girl full of confidence, integrity, she achieved the success to touch her dreamline. The showcasing of her triple twisting-double, flying high into the sky, tucking tightly of her legs as she twists in the air, are amazing in a word. After being succeed at the 25th World Championship Biles extended her lead as the most decorated gymnast of all time. She finished the event with five gold medals in the all-around, team, vault, balance team and floor competitions. It was the most successfull world championships of her career. If the Tokyo Olympic would not postponed due to Covid19, we could have see some more magics.

 

Simone continues to compete only against herself in a league of her own. She always has won cometitions with full points in a sport of tenths, but the gap only continues to widen as she improves at a faster rate than her rivals. In 2017 she was invited to play 'Not My Job' game, it is a game where a guest host like American actor Tom Hanks, ask question.s to very successful peoples on things that have absolutely nothing to do with their success.

The record smashing athlete won her first U.S. and world all-around titles in 2013. Later in 2015 she made a record third straight world all-around title. The age of her gymnastics only tells a part of her achivements. When she enter a compition, seems like that she only can lose if she makes a mistake is a brutal burden in a sport where mistakes are always a milimetre away.

 

Bile was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio in United States. She and her sister, Adria were raised by their grandfather Ron and grandmother Nellie, they officially adopted the two girls. Nellie has been a constant source of support through belies' rise in the competitive athletics, encouraged and never let her fell down about something for too long.
