With the Olympics in Rio just days away, we have decided that it’s time to get to know some of the American athletes that you will be watching. Sure you already know Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, but what about those volleyball players, gymnasts, and swimmers who you’ve never heard of. They deserve just as much love and affection as the professional basketball players and Michael Phelps.
The lucky lady in our spotlight today is US gymnast Simone Biles. She will be competing in the Olympics for the first time this upcoming summer. She has earned 14 medals through various different qualifiers in her career. If that wasn’t impressive enough, she won the all around title in gymnastics on three separate occasions. I have a feeling she is going to represent our country well in Rio.
She may not have made it into the newest edition of ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue like fellow Olympian Nzingha Prescod, but she is just as beautiful.
