Simone Biles' entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a daycare field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, along with drive to succeed no matter the obstacle, are what brought her to the national spotlight during the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro and have catapulted her ever since-including becoming the first gymnast in competition to land a double-twisting somersault on beam and the first woman to land a triple double on floor But there is more to Simone than the medals-fourteen of them gold-record six US all-around championships, and Olympic successes. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive, while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves.
