Simone Biles looking down at balance beam

Simone Biles is perhaps the greatest U.S. gymnast of all time. She is out of the competition due to a possible unknown injury. Jordan Chiles will take her place as the backup. Biles performed her Olympic routine. Afterwards, she met with her trainer and then left the floor with the team doctor.

Reportedly Biles’ decision may not be physical.

Simone is 24 years old.

Simone Biles was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio. She has a twin sister named Adria and also has two other siblings.  Biles started doing gymnastics at the age of four years old and quickly found success.

She has a very competitive personality which is evident in her approach to training for competitions. She trains six days per week in addition to two-a-day workouts.
