You might remember Simone Biles from the 2016 Summer Olympics, but she didn’t stop there. On November 3rd, she became the first American to medal in every event at a World Gymnastics Championship.
After winning gold medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics, Simone took a year off. Without being a full year back in, she managed to win four gold medals, one silver, and one bronze at the World Championship.
I admire Simone’s hard work, dedication, braveness, and resilience. A week before the championship, she found out that she had kidney stones. Simone thought about toning down her floor work for Worlds but then realized that is very unlike her. “I would never,” she reported to AP News.
Although Simone wishes she had done better, she knows that America and her team is proud of her because she made history. She holds the record for most career world champion titles by a gymnast. I don’t know what you guys think but that’s absolutely mind-blowing to me!
Simone is a girl with beauty and brains and an admiration for all girls and gymnast!
