As the Rio Olympic Games wrap up for 2016, the name to emerge, and the person everyone is talking about is not just Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt – it’s Simone Biles. The 19 year-old gymnast from Team USA absolutely dominated in her field, making world sporting history and is sure to have a zillion opportunities rolling in for the long run. Her estimated net worth following the games has sky-rocketed, with over $4 million dollars in endorsement deals lined up.
Put simply: she’s a bloody champion and needs to be celebrated.
Here’s 7 times she proved that she’s an ultimate boss:
1. She became the first American to win four women’s gymnastic gold medals
She scored five medals total, including four gold in Rio, which makes her not only the first American female gymnast to do so, but this feat ties her with only four other gymnasts for the record at a single Olympic Games. What’s important to note though, is that today standards are more difficult and intricate then ever, U.S. National Team Coordinator Martha Karolyi even said: “I think Simone is so much better than the whole field all over the world.”
