In addition to being the world’s greatest gymnast, Simone Biles is adding author to her resume.
The 19-year-old gold medalist is set release her autobiography, “Courage To Soar” on November 15.
The book, which will feature a foreword by Mary Lou Retton, will tell Simone’s life story from how she got her start in gymnastics and will detail her journey to becoming the best in the world.
“I want people to reach for their dreams. If you’re willing to put in a lot of work, and if you’re focused and determined, you can go really far,” Biles says in a statement. “That doesn’t mean everything will happen overnight; for me, it took years of training and perseverance to reach my goals. But looking back on it now, I’m glad I didn’t give up. There so many people who have inspired me with their love and encouragement along the way — and I want to pass on that inspiration to readers.”
“Courage To Soar” will be published by Zondervan.
