Be on the lookout for Simone Biles the upcoming week, when the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics begins to air this Friday, August 5. For those who haven't heard about the super star U.S. gymnast, they need to ASAP. Judging by Biles' winning record, she could be scoring big this year. So it is important to get to know her. Looking at Simone Biles Instagram and Twitter accounts shows that Biles is just another normal 19-year-old girl — who just happens to be on the U.S. Olympic team.
Some quick information on Biles: she owns the most world medals in U.S. history, the most world championship gold medals out of any female gymnast yet has zero Olympic medals since she was too young to compete in the last Olympics. With such an impressive record, Biles and her fans are itching to see Biles go for Olympic gold. On Sunday, August 7, Biles will make her first Olympic appearance at the gymnastics qualifiers — definitely something that all Olympic lovers will not want to miss. While it sounds like the pressure may on for Biles, one look at her Instagram and Twitter accounts show that the teenager is keeping cool under pressure and just likes, well, being a teenager.

Even though the women compete against each other in individual events, they also have a chance at winning gold in the Team All-Around event. It is the support for each other and the bond that they've created that will carry each girl to gold.
She Enjoys A Good Night In
