Simone Biles took home 5 medals from the 2016 Summer Olympics, 4 of them being Gold. She is said to be the most dominant gymnast ever. This is the question. What makes Simone and the other American gymnast so dominant compared to the other countries? One answer is for sure….POWER. Simone can run faster and jump higher. This allows her more time to complete more movements in the air which equates to higher points. Simone's power was impossible to miss during her floor routine, hitting higher jumps, more flips and even having a move named after her. Since she is the only one that can do it the "Biles" is a double back with a 180 twist (shown above). She is the most powerful gymnast in the world and there is no denying that. So what is power?
Power is strength. All the gymnast at the Olympic level have pretty similar skills. Simone just gives her self more time in the air to show off these skills. She is an unbelievable talent and she is the beginning of what will be a obvious shift to get gymnasts stronger. Strength was the difference maker and the other countries will take notice.
