A gorgeous profile photo of the GOAT, Simone Biles, is on the cover of Time magazine, naming her Time's 2021 Athlete of the Year! We're not surprised, as she earned it with all of her amazing accomplishments, including achieving two medals in the Tokyo Summer Olympics — silver for team and bronze for beam final. With that, she made history, joining Shannon Miller as the most decorated American in the history of Olympic gymnastics.

But we're also excited that she was chosen since Biles has become a powerful voice for making mental health and self-care a priority. Check out this inspiring video from Time about why Biles was chosen as Athlete of the Year (as if we need convincing!), showing that she is "so much more than a gymnast." Biles is one of the greatest athletes of all time, and this is a well-deserved honour.
