Simone Biles, 22
This gymnast has inspired many young athletes to aim high and achieve their dreams. At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, she won an impressive four gold medals and one bronze during the team, all-around, balance beam, and floor exercise competitions. In 2018, she became the first woman gymnast to win four all-around world championships at the 48th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. If there's anything we can learn from Simone, it's that hard work and perseverance pay off.
