Have you ever heard somebody saying that big things usually do come in small packages? Well, that can be said for Simone Biles who has become one of the most successful athletes in the United States. We are talking about a woman that has been able to achieve more as a teenager than most athletes achieve over the course of their entire careers.
Simone is an American artistic gymnast and she is 22 years of age. Many people believe that she is one of the most talented people that have ever competed in this sport. There are a lot of people who even call her the greatest of all time.
Nobody has won more World Championship gold medals than Simone. No woman has even come close to accomplishing what Biles was able to during her career. She is the first female gymnast who was able to win three World All-Around titles in a row. That’s a special feat right there.
In 2016 she became an Olympic champion, which was kind of expected since she came to the games as a big favorite. Everybody knew that she was going to leave Rio with at least one gold medal.
But, that was not enough for Simone. After winning individual All-around gold in Rio, she also won vault and floor gold medals, which cemented her legacy.
She just turned 22 years of age on December 18th. We did mention something about big things coming in small packages. That’s because Simone is only 1.42m tall. Quite a small woman, yet that probably allowed her to be as successful as she is. Hard work and dedication had a lot to do with that as well.
Today, we can say that she is one of the most recognizable athletes in the United States of America. Some would even say that she is the symbol of this sport. We are for sure not going to disagree with that.
Simone made it into the mainstream media. A lot of TV shows wanted her to be their guest, which has been good for her popularity. The success in her sport and her charisma are responsible for the endorsement deals that came her way after all the victories in her sport.
Simone Biles Net Worth
Right now, as of December 2019, Simone Biles’ net worth is estimated at around 4 million dollars. Career earnings had to do something with that, but endorsement deals are a big part of her earnings as well. Nike, Core Power, Procter, GK Elite Sportswear are just some of the companies that she represents.
We do know that gymnasts end their careers when they are young because the body is just not able to do the same things as it gets older. However, Biles is still going quite strong, she was great during the 2019 World Championships when she broke the record for most medals ever at the tournament. Simone is showing no signs of slowing down, so we can expect to see her in the upcoming years, competing at the highest level.
