Armour, Simone Biles is the Best American Athlete you don’t know

Simone Biles is one of the most famous and best American Athlet, Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt need no introductions. Serena and LeBron don’t even need last names. And then there’s Simone Biles.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t recognize the name. Most people probably don’t. But write it down now because by the time the Rio Olympics are over, you’ll not only know who the gymnast is, you’ll know everything about her.

“Everybody is going to know her just like everybody knew Mary Lou,” said Tim Daggett, a member of the U.S. men’s team that won gold in 1984 and longtime NBC commentator, so everybody is know that she is best american athlete.
