Product Description

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, passion, and perseverance have made her into one of the top gymnasts in the world-as well as a strong contender for the Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro. In her own words, Simone recounts the events, challenges, and trials that have carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the 2016 Olympic team. Along that path, Simone has garnered fourteen world medals, ten of them gold. Therefore she has the most World Championship gold medals of any female gymnast, and she is the most decorated U.S. female gymnast in World Championship history. Through years of hard work and determination, Simone 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. For the first time, Simone shares her inspiring personal story-one filled with daily acts of courage and unlikely dreams.

Author Bio

SIMONE BILES is a four-time Olympic gold medalist and a three-time World all-around gymnastics champion. In 2015 at the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, she became the only female gymnast to ever win three consecutive all-around titles. She is also the most decorated American female gymnast, with a total of nineteen medals, fourteen of them gold. Simone, who was born in Ohio and later adopted by her grandparents in Texas, began her training at age 6. During a serendipitous day care field trip to Bannon’s Gymnastix, a coach recognized Simone’s natural talent and sent home a letter to her parents, requesting that they enroll her in a class. Simone rose quickly through the sport’s levels, and in 2011, she began her junior elite career at the American Classics in Huntsville, Texas, where she placed third all-around. Amid a few setbacks in the following two seasons, Simone rebounded in 2013 to claim the first of her three all-around World Championship titles. With her strong faith in God and her triumph against the odds, Simone is inspiring millions to dream big and follow their hearts.
