Simone Biles

Simone Biles is, quite possibly, the most gifted gymnast in the world has ever seen. Almost super-human in the speed and complexity of her routines, the Texan has held the record for most decorated American gymnast since 2016, with nineteen medals - including four Olympic golds - in her trophy cabinet before the age of 22 (a particularly exceptional feat when one considers her predecessor, Oklahoman Shannon Miller, previously held the title from 1993 – four years before Simone was born). Stay tuned for more gravity-defying displays at her next Olympic bid, Tokyo 2020 (or follow her on Snapchat for daily updates from her much-adored French bulldog, Lilo).
