5 Fun Facts About Simone Biles

Simone is the best gymnast in the world. Hands down, no one is better than her. She is more than proving herself at the Olympics to why she is deserving of the title of the best gymnast in the world. With help bringing the gold home to the U.S. in the team competition and in the all around. Simone is truly someone to watch out for, no matter what. Yet with all that being said I think we forget that she is also a young bubbly girl! Here are some fun facts about her!

1. She's the shortest out of all 555 U.S. Olympic athletes in Rio.

Alright, this has to be one of my favorite facts. With only being a staggering 4’9”, Simone gets to take home the “gold” in being the shortest athlete to compete for the U.S. Which in my mind is the best thing ever!

2. Her younger sister Adria is a gymnast too.

Being a gymnast must run in the family! This is cool because not only does her sister get to compete alongside, but she can gain some tips from the best gymnast in the world! Which in my opinion is one of the coolest things to be able to do!

3. She has her own move named after her

Only a few gymnasts can say that they have a move named after themselves. This is a huge honor to have in any sport and should be celebrated! Simone’s move is a double layout with 1/2 turn. This move is now rightfully named “The Biles”.

4. She's hitting a whole lot of "firsts."

Not only is Biles the first female gymnast to win three world all-around titles in a row, she's also the first African-American gymnast to become the world all-around champion.

5. She wants to get a "real job" after she's done competing

This is for me is a neat fact about her. Most Olympians, once retired, run on sponsorships and what not. But just hearing that she wants to go out into the world and be “normal” after she has retired is comforting.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
