That Part of Simone Biles Which Fans Would Not Have Known If Not For What Happened

 

Biles was born on March 14, 1997 in Columbus, Ohio. She was raised and home-schooled by her grandparents in Houston, Texas. Since age six, Biles knew the field of gymnastics was her calling. While visiting a gymnastics center on a field trip, she was fascinated.

While there, she began to imitate what she saw the gymnasts doing. The coach at the center noticed. Soon after the field trip, a letter was sent to her home from the gymnastics center, requesting she join tumbling or gymnastics.

 

She began  training officially at age eight. Her first competition was held in Texas where she excelled on both the vault and balance beam. In 2013 she hit senior elite level as the all around winner, winning the U.S. P and G championships, becoming the first African American female to win 10 gold medals.

 

 

AS A CHILD, SIMONE BILES WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD.
In 2016, Russian hackers broke into the World Anti-Doping Agency’s website and publicized various athletes’ private medical records, including Biles’. Biles was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and takes Ritalin, a stimulant that is on the agency’s banned list.

 

 

However, Biles has approval from USA gymnastics to take the medication in a therapeutic-use exemption. Biles took to Twitter to send a message that taking medication for ADHD is nothing to be ashamed of.

 

 

While some find this record disturbing, Simone Biles has made it clear to the public that she is not a drug addict but if taking that drugs would make her feel alright, she has no other option but to take it according to her doctor’s prescription.
