02 Feb The Simone Biles Story Movie: Courage To Soar
The Simone Biles Story movie follows Simone Biles (Jeanté Godlock) through the sacrifices and hard work that led her to win 19 Olympic and World Championship medals and ultimately cemented her stake as one of the greatest gymnasts of all time.
After a field trip to a gymnastics training center when Simone was six years old, she caught the eye of a local coach who recognized that Simone had a remarkable gift for the sport.
But pursuing her dream of becoming an elite gymnast also meant giving up high school football games, prom or starting college at UCLA. With her parents Ron and Nellie Biles and younger sister Adria supporting her every step of the way, Simone’s journey from foster care to the Olympic podium – with all of its triumphs and heartbreaks – can serve as an inspiration for every little girl with a dream.
Kelly Fullerton adapts the Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance book on Biles and is directed by Vanessa Parise.
Participating in any sport at a professional level is extremely competitive. But to get to the title of a World Champion or an Olympic medalist is extraordinary. But to keep winning the medals year after year can leave you just speechless. The Simone Biles Story movie shows you how Simone Biles became one of the best gymnast the world has seen and the sacrifices she had to make along the way to be the best in the world.
