Simone Biles!

Have you ever watched the Olympics? Well if you have watched when the gymnasts compete you might have seen a very famous gymnast named Simone Biles! She competed for the U.S.A. along with Ali Raisman. She is 20 year old gymnast who has won 4 Gold medals which makes her the first gymnast ever to ever win 3 Olympic gold medals. If you want to see one of her floor routines in the 2016 Olympics go to this link: One of Simone Biles floor routines,  Simone Biles was born on March 14, 1997.  She has one in total 19 medals and is the most decorated gymnast in the world. Some people say she is the best gymnast in the world! Others disagree. She and her sister were raised by her grandpa, Ron and her Grandmother, Nellie. She soon grew up and became a amazing gymnast! As you can see here:Simone practicing in the gym! She has to practice to make sure she gets strong and ready for competition. Usually if you are short it is easier to do gymnastics than people who are tall. So since Simone Biles is short it is easier for her to do the gymnastic moves she does.  

Aly Raisman

Now that we are done with Simone we can move on too Aly Raisman. She is also and gymnast for the U.S.A. and competed in the Olympics. Aly is an 23 year old gymnast and has won 2 gold medals. Some of her floor routines in the Olympics are in this link: Aly’s floor routine.  This was also in the 2016 Olympics along with Simone. She was born on May 25, 1994. She grew up living with her parents which include her mom, Lynn and her father, Rick.  Aly has to practice just as much as Simone to get that strength you need to do some of the moves in competitions. You can see that here: Aly Rasiman practicing at the gym.  She has to build her upper body and arms so she climbs the rope without her legs. Pretty hard huh? Since she isn’t as short as Simone it’s a little harder for her. But as you can see she does just fine! Thanks so much for reading my post and I hope you enjoyed! 🙂
