Jonathan Owens’ special tweet for Simone Biles

Having been away from the sport for over a year, one would expect an athlete’s popularity to downgrade. But, it did not happen for Simone Biles. The American gymnast’s popularity has grown multitudes. She has become a global advocate for the mental health of athletes. Simone has also overcome significant challenges at the personal end of her life to get where she is.

Keeping the same in mind, Simone is one of 17 people who would be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. President Joe Biden will bestow the highest civilian honor upon the famed gymnast in the coming week. While the announcement was special for Simone, her fiance made it even better with a heartfelt tweet.

Jonathan Owens tweeted, “Still in disbelief, I’m so proud of you baby.” The tweet may be a simple one, but the emotions behind it speak volumes. Owens has been the biggest supporter of Simone since day one and has always made her feel special. As Biles lovingly puts it, Owens is her, ‘home in a person,’ and he does a great job justifying it. 

This year’s list includes 17 people from different disciplines, including actor Denzel Washington. The honorees who achieve the medal “have overcome significant obstacles to achieve impressive accomplishments in the arts and sciences, dedicated their lives to advocating for the most vulnerable among us, and acted with bravery to drive change in their communities, and across the world, while blazing trails for generations to come.”
