What to Get Your Young Simone Biles Superfan
As the 2020 Summer Olympics kick off, all eyes will be gazing toward the heavens (or rather, the ceiling of Tokyo’s Ariake Gymnastics Centre) for a glimpse of Simone Biles, the world’s most decorated gymnast.
“Developmentally, younger kids are in a magical place where they have these amazing imaginations and anything’s possible—including being Simone Biles,” says Danielle Roeske, PsyD, executive director of Newport Healthcare, a series of nationwide mental-health treatment facilities for teens and young adults.
The gymnast has her own line of leotards—Legacy by Simone Biles, manufactured by GK Elite Sportswear—which she dons at competitions.
If your Biles fan would prefer an understated athleisure look, Biles recently forged a partnership with Athleta.
The brand’s Simone Biles Edit line includes leggings, shorts, tanks, and tees geared toward the sophisticated teen or tween fashion lover at prices that top out at $50.
