Simone Biles On Why Athletes Should Speak Out On The Issues They Care About | Forbes

Basic information
Date of placement

Simone Biles is a four-time Olympic gold medal winner and a 10-time world championship gold medal winner, making her one of the most decorated U.S. women's gymnasts ever and an instant sensation. She has endorsement deals with Nike, Kellogg's, Hershey's and even has her own line of gymnastic equipment. Biles, arguably the greatest gymnast of all time, surprisingly pulled out of the team gymnastics final at the Tokyo Olympic Games, telling reporters she did so to prioritize her mental health. She explained that she didn’t trust herself to do dangerous stunts and that choosing to remain in the competition could have potentially led to serious injury and cost Team USA a medal. America would go on to win the silver. She joined the 2020 Forbes Power Women's Summit to discuss her road to success and how she’s channeling her resilience to create and drive change.
