Simone Biles is the greatest gymnast in history. No caveats, no gender qualifiers, no getting around the fact that at 24 she’s broken just about every record there is to break. Twenty-five World Championship medals, four never-before-been-done moves named after her, and a performance level so fearless, it raised the bar for the entire sport. And she’s still at the top of her game, making her one of the best all-around athletes of our time, a competitor whose name will forever belong in the same breath as Serena Williams and Michael Jordan and Michael Phelps.
The breathtaking photos accompany an interview with Biles about finding balance during 2020.
"I feel like everybody was painting, or knitting, or doing something cool in quarantine, so I was like, 'I'm going to learn how to do my makeup, my hair, and my nails,'" Biles said in the interview. "I almost ruined my nails, so that is no longer permitted. I've definitely gotten better at doing my hair, but clearly I'm not gifted in that department. I'm just really trying to find who I am."
