Simone Arianne Biles is an American artistic gymnast. Biles is the 2016 Olympic individual all-around, vault and floor gold medalist, and balance beam bronze medalist. She was also part of the gold-medal-winning team dubbed the "Final Five" at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Simone Biles keeps raising the bar in a sport that failed her

The case for Simone Biles’ athletic dominance was deemed airtight long ago with enough medals and titles, records and milestones, to fill volumes. She is, indisputably, the GOAT — insert all applicable emojis: the crowns, the praise hands, the wide-eyed awestruck face, and of course, the coded livestock itself.

Biles once again drew widespread acclaim at this weekend’s U.S. Gymnastics Championships, handily claiming the gold while performing two separate skills that no other woman had completed in competition: a double-double dismount from the balance beam and a triple-double — that’s three twists and two flips — in her floor routine. Her final score was five points more than the second-place finisher in a sport that regularly comes down to decimal points.

“Are you human?” Natalie Morales asked Biles last year on the Today Show after she’d won the 2018 U.S. Gymnastics Championships. “I am human, but I get that question all the time,” Biles responded. She went on to win the 2018 Worlds a few months later while suffering from a kidney stone.

Biles is used to working through pain and not only because gymnastics is such a brutal sport. In early 2018, she shared that she too had been abused by Larry Nassar. “It is impossibly difficult to relive these experiences,” she wrote. “I have promised myself that my story will be much greater than this and I promise all of you that I will never give up.”
