In the world of gymnastics, Simone Biles needs no formal introduction. Despite being young, Simone has achieved feats that remain unattainable for many. Starting her journey as a gymnast at the young age of six, Simone has overcome many hurdles on and off the mat over the course of the years. With 25 World Championship medals, she is, indeed, the GOAT of gymnastics.

Simone had a tough time growing up. Shifting from one foster care to another, the Biles siblings faced multiple hurdles. Although with hard work and determination, Simone can now lead a comfortable lifestyle, she does not take success or money for granted. However, with wedding bells around the corner, Simone was spotted doing something unusual.
