Sport’s Illustrated Fittest Female

Simone Biles.

… the world’s most decorated gymnast towers over the competition.

After time away in 2017, the 21-year-old Biles returned to rule the sport again in ’18 with 
an unmatched mix of muscle and mettle. At the world championships in Doha, Qatar, in November, she set the record for career world titles among men and women, with 14, including four more gold medals—all while suffering from a painful kidney stone. An all-around champion, indeed. ​

I remain so impressed that it’s the athletes pushing this issue forward. Not USAG, not the American Medical Association, not the NCAA, not IOC. Not coaches.
