If you don’t know Simone Biles’ name yet, you will by the end of this summer.
The 19-year-old Texas gymnast is one of Team USA’s best bets for multiple gold medals in Rio. She’s the anchor of the women’s gymnastics team and the first woman to win three back-to-back World Gymnastics Championships. Some are even calling her the most talented gymnast of all time ― and she hasn’t even set foot in an Olympic arena yet. Between NBC’s wall-to-wall coverage in August, as well as Biles’ various endorsement deals, you’re going to see a lot of her this summer.
Biles’ performances in Rio will no doubt inspire thousands of little girls to beg their parents for gymnastics classes. And while most of us can’t reasonably aspire to Olympic gymnast levels of strength and flexibility, she’ll probably inspire a few adults to lace up our sneakers or pick up a few weights, too.
