Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles draws the attention of fans and followers in a recent post where she says she "built herself."


After a rough 2020, things seem to be going right for gymnast Simone Biles. Apart from her tremendous career, Biles's relationship is going fine. In recent times, she has taken every opportunity she gets to speak her mind on different issues.

The Olympic gold medalist recently shared a post on her Instagram page that got her fans talking. She posted pictures of herself wearing a white T-shirt with red print.

In the pictures, Biles struck a side pose with her hands running through her hair against a grey wall in the background. The pictures were not the only thing that fans reacted to.

What caught the attention of her fans and followers was the statement-making caption beneath her pictures. She wrote in the caption of the post: 

"I built me."


The 24-year old used the caption to tell her story and the struggles she experienced on the journey to becoming an internationally acclaimed gymnast, the most decorated in US history. 

She does not care what the trolls say about her body because she loves her body the way it is


According to a story on Biles by Glamour, her early life and childhood were quite rough. Biles grew up under the parenting of her foster parents and then her grandparents because her biological mother struggled with alcohol and drug problems.

Biles credits her grandparents for her successful career. She has said that it was her grandmother who enrolled her in gymnastics lessons when she was just six years old.


She went on to get into the senior national gymnastics team in 2013. However, her rise to success was not a stratospheric one. In the summer of 2013, things got rough for her as she experienced several failures.

The "Courage to Soar" author narrated how she struggled to gain confidence in herself and her capabilities. She also recounted her experience with trolls and critics who have body-shamed her.


She said she had been bullied because of her body, particularly her arms. Biles' fans typically fight back at the trolls and critics whenever they attack her body but recently, Biles has taken it upon herself to clap back at the trolls. 

She reportedly took to her Twitter page and made it clear that she did not care what the trolls say about her body because she loves her body just the way it is.
