Simone Biles won 19 Olympic and world championships medals. she was born in Ohio in 1997.After dominating at the junior elite level, she won her first U.S. and world all-around titles in 2013. In 2015, she claimed a record third straight world all-around title. She went on to lead the U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics team, nicknamed "The Final Five," to win gold at the 2016 Summer Games, and dominated the competition, winning gold in the women's individual all-around, vault and floor exercise and bronze in the balance beam.  

She and her sister, Adria, were raised by their grandfather Ron and grandmother Nellie, after their mother’s struggle with substance abuse problem. Ron and Nellie eventually officially adopted the two girls, and Biles calls her grandmother “Mom.”

      During these past few weeks I had a lot of gymnastic meets. Last week on Friday I had a middle school  meet at Sisston and I got first on all events expected for valt. On valt I got sixth place. Every time you get first you would get a little sock monkey and they would have the letter of the event on the sock monkey. I got four because of the three events that I got first in and on all a round. The three events that I got first in was floor, beam, and bars.

      Last week on Saturday I went to a junior high meet/ varsity meet. I competed the junior high meet and it was very fun I did not get first in anything but I placed in every event and all around. The one event I did not place in was valt. I decided I have to start working harder on valt because I did not place in it on both meets.

Christmas Break

      During this Christmas break I had gymnastic practice. While I was at home I was very tired and wanted to go to sleep. I knew that if I did not go to practice I could not go to the meets that were coming up. I decided to go to practice and then a few days later we all got told who was going to all of the meets that were coming up. So I knew that I better not miss any practices.

   The power was out at our place so there was nothing to do at our house. I just sat there and did nothing. At this time my grandma was there and we lit candles all around in the house and when it became night time it was very dark so got out some flash lights and played a card games with only the flashlights. In the morning the house was cold it was only 50 decrease in our house so I staid in bed with all of the covers on me. When the power came back on our heater was fried so we could not get the house any warmer. That is how my Christmas break went.

Gymnastic Skills 

 My best skill I like is a standing back tuck I learned it last year but I forgot how to do it after summer but I learned it again. The next skill that I like is a round-off back handspring back tuck those are really fun because I get a lot of flight on my back tuck. My next favorite skill is a handstand cause its the one thing that you get to stay upside down for a long time.

 My worst skill is a front walkover because it hurts my back. My next worst skill is a back walkover on the beam because I am scared that my hands are not going to land on the beam. My last worst skill is a flyaway it is where you are on the high bar and you let go of your hands and tuck your legs to your chest.
