Personal Quotes (1)

[on Simone Biles] I always keep up with gymnastics because I love the Olympics. But what struck me when I first saw Simone in Rio was how perfect she was at everything. That girl was born to do what she does. And she is the best at it. Not the best black gymnast, not the best black girl gymnast. The best gymnast. It really is inspiring. It's like she's sending a message to everyone who's watching. No matter what you're going through in life or what your circumstances are, you can still be number 1. You've just got to work hard.
