Jordan Chiles Admired Shawn Johnson Growing Up
Chiles told ESPN that she remembers standing on line for what felt like hours to meet Shawn Johnson after the 2008 Olympic Games. "One day your baby girl will know how much you inspired girls like me (with big muscles and power) to dream," Chiles wrote on Twitter.
She further told POPSUGAR that she also looks up to Dominique Dawes, the first Black woman to win an individual Olympic medal in artistic gymnastics, as well as two-time Olympian Aly Raisman. Chiles said, of course, that she's inspired every day by Biles, stating, "She's an idol."
