Black Gymnasts in History: Simone Biles

Simone (1)

Simone Biles

Simone!!!

What more can you say—just one of the best gymnasts in history.

Initially, we were not going to feature Simone because she is still competing—but she has already made her mark on the sport and she was part of the inspiration for this project.

No matter what happens moving forward, what Simone Biles has achieved will stand the test of time and has made everyone so proud.

As part of our month-long Black Gymnasts in History project, we are proud to salute the most successful female World Champion Gymnast EVER, Simone Biles!
