“Synonymous with making history, synonymous with AMAZING us all every time she competes,” Team USA tweeted the same day. “GIVE IT UP for the 2019 Female Olympic Athlete of the Year, @Simone_Biles!”

This year was very special for the Columbus, Ohio native. She had two new moves named after her and became the most decorated gymnast in the world championship in October.

Biles also threw out the first pitch at the World Series last month after doing a standing twisting backflip.

Congrats to Simone! Keep killing it in 2020.
