A mind of her own

Biles’ mother Nelly Biles has revealed how amazing of a person Simone Biles is, always taking a stand for herself as well as others. She revealed that Biles is the same as she always was, brave and courageous. From a young age itself, Simone Biles was talkative and expressive.

“Simone was talkative, Simone was expressive, she didn’t agree with everything that I said. Simone had a mind of her own,” said Nelly Biles.

Biles has always stood by her sister in times of trouble and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. There is no doubt that Biles will always back someone up, helping them throughout.

“Simone advocated for herself and she’s always spoken for her sister, so she will always talk for someone,” added Simone’s mother

The 24-year-old made a bold decision during Tokyo 2022. She had a case of the “twisties” and realized she needed to stop. Even though her decision was met with a lot of criticism, at the same, she inspired so many other athletes who were going through the same.
