Simone Biles is one of the celebrities competing in Season 24 of ABC's reality competition series "Dancing with the Stars" in spring 2017.

At 19 years old, Simone Biles is already considered one of the best and most decorated gymnasts in the history of the sport. She was adopted by her grandparents at a young age, and they have been a major influence in her life, introducing her to the sport of gymnastics. She was always jumping around at a young age and was introduced to the sport on a school field trip to Bannon's Gymnastix at the age of six. While she trains close to 35 hours per week, Biles knows how to keep things fun and is known for inventing new skills during training. One move, a complex flip that she incorporated into her floor routine during the 2013 World Championships, is now known as the "Biles."

Biles' career highlights include being an Olympic Gold medalist in vault, floor, Individual and Team All-Around, and a Bronze medalist on Beam at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She won the All-Around by a 2.1 margin of victory, larger than the margins of victory from 1980-2012 combined. She's the first woman gymnast to win three consecutive World All-Around titles, most World Championship gold medals won by a female gymnast in history (ten), most decorated World Championship American gymnast with fourteen total medals (ten gold, two silver, two bronze), the first woman to capture four gold medals at a single World Championships (2014 & 2015) since the Soviet Union's Ludmilla Tourischeva in 1974, the first female African-American all-around world champion, undefeated in the all-around competition since 2013, the First American woman in 23 years to win three all-around national titles, honored as the 2014 Women's Sports Foundation's "Sportswoman of the Year," and named Olympic Athlete of the Year by the USOC 2015. Biles was also the first American female gymnast chosen by Team USA to be the flag bearer for the closing ceremonies.

Simone's book, "Courage to Soar," is a New York Times Best Seller, #1 under Young Adult Hard Covers.
