G.O.A.T. – Simone Biles: Why She is Like No Other (Part II)

Simone crushed her competition.

The rest of the gymnasts don’t fare much better against her. Biles won the all-around titles at the Rio Olympics and the 2018 world championships both by just two points. As her friend and teammate Aly Raisman, who finished in second at the 2016 Games, famously stated: “If you get silver, you’re the best since Simone doesn’t count.”

She has no weaknesses

If it is believed that Simone Biles has a weakness (and in all honesty she doesn’t), it would be on the uneven bars. She frequently talked about how much she struggled and disliked participating in the event, and she has not won an Olympic or world medal on the apparatus. However, she has made a substantial effort to get better at the event during her comeback after her post-Olympic break. Good grief: now she is a true medal threat in that event as well.

She’s a vocal leader

Not only is Biles the greatest of all time, but she also has a winning personality. Known for her funny quips, charming social media presence and for speaking up on things that matter to her, she is nobody to mess with outside the gym as well.

A survivor of sexual abuse from former team doctor Larry Nassar, she has been a true advocate for her fellow survivors, and even wore a teal leotard in solidarity during nationals in 2018. She has spoken up on many occasions due to not being pleased with the leadership of USA Gymnastics, and it has resulted in real change.

Simone Biles was the runaway champion due to the fact that she’s better not just than any American, but any person on the globe. Any way you break it down, Biles is the greatest female gymnast of all time.
