Five time Olympic champion Simone Biles shows off her stunning figure in Sports Illustrated 2017 Swimsuit Issue. Sporting a white one piece bathing suit, the gymnast who became a household name after the 2016 Rio Olympics now graces the coveted swimsuit issue.
According to People, Biles hasn’t been comfortable showing off her body, “It’s hard growing up in a sport where you compete with very little clothing on your body and everyone is staring at [your body] no matter how good you are. No matter how good you are at the sport, people will always say you don’t look good enough.” Biles encourages others who struggle with body acceptance, she said “Love your body! You were born with it, God has blessed you. Don’t pay attention to negativity.”
So excited to make my @SI_Swimsuit debut in the 2017 issue! https://t.co/KVGM0T7LDK | So happy to be a part of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Where athletes bodies can be beautiful too.
