Simone Biles Remains in the Spotlight

Simone Biles is really killing it. With hot dates, music videos and #friendshipgoals, it does not matter what she is doing, it is just amazing. Simone Biles, who is the five-time Olympic medalist, is featured on the cover of Ebony as a member of the annual Power 100 of the magazine.

 

The Olympics Gold medalist wrote on the micro-blogging site that power is doing the work that impacts their communities and generations to come. She wrote, “Happy to be part of the #EBONYPower100! Watch my “power” video at www.ebony.com.”

The star gymnast cannot be stopped. Simone Biles, an American artistic gymnast, has won five Olympic medals and won people with an equally golden smile. Since August, the gold medalist gymnast has racked up quite the resume of honors and awards. Biles is the 2016 Olympic individual vault, floor and all-around gold medalist.

At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Biles was part of the gold medal-winning team, codenamed the “Final Five.” The star gymnast was the recipient of two honors on Friday. Those two honors were bigger than her double-doubles.

Simone Biles was named a part of Ebony Power 100 of Ebony magazine and honored as the 2016 Woman of the Year by the Glamour magazine. Her cover photo on the cover of Ebony magazine is nothing less than sheer perfection. Four influential and powerful black people in the United States have covered the new power 100 issue of Ebony magazine. Biles is featured as one of the four cover stars, sitting next to influential names Nas, John Legend and Ava DuVernay.

 

The five time Olympic medalist Biles slayed for the Glamour magazine, with perfect words to match. She said, “I hate the word no. There aren’t really any limits.” Being honored with the GOAT before one’s 20th birthday would go to nearly everyone’s head, but not Biles. She continues to be humble.

In an interview with the Ebony magazine, the star gymnast said it still feel normal to her because it is what she does. While on the road with Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions, she tells Ebony that she feels privileged and honored to go out there and represent the United States every single time.

The cover story by Ebony read, “Simone Biles is tiny in stature, at only 4 feet 9 inches tall, but she is pure power in motion.” Further, the cover story highlighted her Olympic performance, saying that the whole world took notice of the 19-year-old gymnast when she vaulted, leaped, and tumbled her way into the record books last summer in the Rio Olympics and became the most decorated gymnast in the history of the United States.

Biles had won around four golds and one bronze and an impressive title for her – the greatest American gymnast of all time – by the time the 2016 Rio Olympics ended, concludes the cover story by Ebony magazine.
