The Olympic gold medalists were published in the magazine in 2017 and 19.
At just 25 years old, Simone Biles has won seven Olympic medals, including four gold medals, and is known as the GOAT of gymnastics. She is truly a force to be reckoned with.
In 2017, she debuted in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue, and a photo shoot by James Macari in Houston included a series of athletic poses. Borrowed from the floor routine, it features a reverse plank with one leg crossed over the other, similar to the final ending pose of the gold medal-winning routine.
In addition to her athletic achievements, Biles has also become a champion in mental health and wellness and advocates for self-care and self-love. What do you think of these photos and Biles’ inspirational message?
