Summary
In this official autobiography from four-time Olympic gold-winning and record-setting American gymnast Simone Biles, Simone shares how her faith, family, passion, and perseverance against tremendous odds helped make her one of the top athletes and record-breaking gymnasts in the world -- now with 25 world championship medals. Simone Biles' entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a daycare field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, along with drive to succeed no matter the obstacle, are what brought her to the national spotlight during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and have catapulted her ever since -- including becoming the first gymnast in competition to land a double-twisting somersault on beam and the first woman to land a triple double on floor. But there is more to Simone than the medals -- nineteen of them world championship gold. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive, while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves. Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Along the way, Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story -- one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her, and can lead you, to even the most unlikely of dreams. Courage to Soar : is the only book that presents Simone Biles' true story from her perspective is an inspirational story for fans of gymnastics and anyone pushing to overcome the odds presents a positive role model for young girls is perfect for school assignments and reports
