Simone Biles Wins Two ESPY Awards
Simone Biles may be having the best year ever!
Simone won two awards at the 2017 ESPY’s Awards, which was held Wednesday, July 12. Simone is a US Olympian gymnast who scored big at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She won four gold medals and one bronze medal at the Summer Olympics in addition to her many other awards, making her the Most Decorated American Gymnast of all time at the age of 20.
This year she won two awards for the night: Best Female Athlete and Best U.S Female Olympian award. She was nominated last year for Best Female Athlete but lost it to Breanna Stewart, so this year’s win is big for her. She took to social media to thank her fans.
