Simone Biles Becomes Most Decorated Female Gymnast In History by nancyiwuchukwuk: 11:51am On Oct 09
American gymnast Simone Biles has continued to prove that she is a force to reckon with in the sports world. The 2016 Olympic individual all-around, vault and floor gold medalist, and balance beam bronze medalist who has become famous for her sole aim of breaking past records have broken another major record.

Though the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic is just a little less than a year away, 22-year-old Simone Biles is constantly delivering jaw-dropping, historic performances and according to CNN, she just earned the title of the most decorated female gymnast in history by winning her 21st World Championship medal—and 15 of those medals are gold, which is another record.

Simone Biles is the GOAT...

Goes to show that HARD WORK and PESERVERANCE pays. The lady started early as a gymnast, then when she was a teenager, she moved hundreds of miles away from her family to another part of the country to settle and train even more to be the best at her field.

Today, she is reaping the fruits of her sacrifices.

cool

Arianne, rising from a ugly background as the daughter of a drug-addicted mother and an equally drug-addicted/absentee father, living in and out of foster homes, to growing into Olympic stardom and achieving an elite status as the most successful gymnast in the history of the sport is no mean feat!

22 years of age and still counting.

Go girl!!!

1.Our sports budget this year is less than N200billion. Gymnastics is a very expensive sport. You need all sorts of equipment,both for actual training and so on.

2.Where is the interest? If people are not coming to watch a certain sport, money, funding and even the number of people interested in taking up that sport falls drastically. Here in Nigeria, when people talk of sport...it is football, and maybe track athletics.

Add the fact that many Nigerian parents don't want their children to be professional athletes in any sport , talkless of gymnastics.

You are right on this part but there is need for sensitization about those sports in schools and various colleges. It’s for the betterment of the country and not the individual alone.

You can never achieve that when the administrators of your sport are not professional. Just bunch of thugs and politicians.

The day we recognise the business side of sports and develop it, we will grow

Not every one should be an athlete. We need them more in the military.

Even our youths aren’t ready to work or engage in any sporting activities. Every dude wants quick money. God bless our generation; God bless our youths....
