Who is Simone Biles? / by Stefanie Loh ; illustrated by Joseph J.M. Qiu.

Loh, Stefanie, (author.). Qiu, Joseph J. M., (illustrator.).


"In 2021, Simone Biles shocked the world when she pulled out of the Tokyo Olympic Games after experiencing the "twisties" -- a scary feeling during which gymnasts lose control of their bodies while mid-air. Audiences had expected Simone to dominate these games. With seven Olympic medals, twenty-five World Championships medals, and four gymnastic skills named after her, she is considered to be the G.O.A.T. of women's gymnastics. That summer, however, Simone became more than just a legendary athlete. She became an advocate for mental health and protecting yourself even when the world is watching"-- Provided by publisher.
