Simone Biles is one of the greatest gymnasts of all time. Still, if there were any doubts about the notion, the 25-year-old’s accolades, including having the most World medal of any gender and record-breaking achievements, would surely beg to differ. The star began her elite career when she was 14-years and has since been an inspiration both on and off the mat. So it’s not surprising that she’s nominated for the “Sportswoman of the Year Award” alongside several legendary athletes, including Brittney Griner, Candace Parker, Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, and Sha’ Carri Richardson.
