Gymnastics Champion Simone Biles Proves She Still Has 'Courage to Soar'

(Facebook/Simone Biles)

Simone Biles may not be setting world records during the COVID-19 pandemic, but she's still wowing her fans across the world.

The 23-year-old gymnast, who owns the most world medals in U.S. history (14) and the most world championships gold medals of any female gymnast, used Twitter to post a video of herself performing a gymnastics feat with the comment: "haven't done a double tuck since I was probably 13 - here you go." The video has gone viral, with more than 300,000 views in only a few hours.

Biles, who is also vocal about her faith on social media, gives God the credit for her success in her book, Courage to Soar, released by Christian publisher Zondervan in 2016. Adopted by her grandparents because of her parents' drug addiction, her life and her gymnastic success continue to give Him praise.
