About Simone Biles

Simone Biles earned her gold medal for individual all-around in gymnastics at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but she stole America’s hearts. At 19, Simone Biles has lived the dream of so many young girls in America (many of whom make up her 3.4M Instagram followers). With her Olympic fame has brought with it perks like meeting President Obama, getting kissed on the cheek by Zac Efron (her favorite), and sitting courtside watching LeBron James. The glamorous life might suit Simone, but her real passion lies in the gymnasium. This year, her autobiography Courage To Soar was released, inspiring girls everywhere to have “a body in motion, a life in balance.”
