Simone Biles, widely regarded as the most magnificent gymnast in history with 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, is also renowned for being bubbly, open, and assertive. Adria Biles, her sister, also has similar traits and was a fellow gymnast and an aspiring dental hygienist.
The siblings had a tough childhood, as their mother was addicted to alcohol. So, they spent their initial years in foster care until their maternal grandparents adopted them. The two sisters became each other’s support system during that time. Adria defended Simone’s decision to withdraw from the Rio Olympics due to mental health issues. In a recent interview about her experience in ‘Claim to Fame’, she shares something sweet about the gymnastics gem.

Adria answered, “I think when people ask this question they don’t realize she is completely normal.” She also added mockingly, “She doesn’t do flips around the house.” She emphasized that Simone is as sweet and troublesome as any other sister, and they share a typical sibling relationship when she said, “We still fight sometimes and I steal her clothes. We are like best friends.”
