Meet Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles [poster]

Simone Biles one of the most accomplished gymnasts in history. She won four gold medals and one bronze at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Biles, from Spring, Texas, owns 25 medals from world championship events, including 19 gold, a record among female gymnasts. Her signature move is the triple-twist, double backflip in the floor exercise.

There’s a reason she’s the most accomplished gymnast of all time. There’s a reason she has ascended into a Michael Phelps-like Olympic stratosphere. There’s a reason she’s the lone athlete on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2021 Olympic preview issue.

There’s a reason she confidently wears the image of a crystallized goat on her leotard.

And that reason is because, when it comes to gymnastics and female Olympians, Simone Biles is the greatest of all time.

Biles is looking to dominate her second straight Olympics
Only one gymnast has won four gold medals in a single Games: Simone Biles.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Biles captured gold in all-around, team, vault and floor. The 24-year-old will look to top that as the overwhelming favorite in Tokyo, where she possibly could take home five gold medals if she can also improve upon her 2016 bronze-medal finish in beam.
