Simone Biles receives Presidential Medal of Freedom

First gymnast ever?


I would think so. Her gymnastics feats are mentioned in the press release but it seems that she was really nominated for her advocacy. I can’t think of another American gymnast who has achieved as much in sport or has used their platform for such significant advocacy.

@Seyonne, thanks for posting the link. It was really interesting to read the list of who else was nominated.
