Simone Arianne Biles was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio, the third of four siblings.

Biles first tried gymnastics at 6 years old as part of a day-care field trip. The instructors suggested she continue with gymnastics. Biles soon enrolled in an optional training program at Bannon’s Gymnastix. She began training with coach Aimee Boorman at age 8

She has never looked back since then.
