Summary This title explores the life and career of the most decorated American gymnast so far, Simone Biles. This young woman rose from the challenges of her youth to break the mold, earning five medals, including four gold, at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Biles is one of only six female gymnasts to have won an individual all-around title at both the world Championships and the Olympic Games. This record-breaking young woman has set the stage for future gymnasts as well as all those struggling to overcome adversity.
