Simone Biles Named U.S. Female Olympic Athlete Of The Year Angela Wilson December 15, 2015 Her Source, Source Sports | News, Highlights and Interviews Eighteen-year-old Olympian Simone Biles is having the best year ever. Biles was just named the winner of the Team USA Female Olympic Athlete of the Year, beating out tennis superstar Serena Williams. Earlier this year, the Columbus, Ohio native became the first woman to win three consecutive world championships, including four gold medals in back-to-back years. She has won 14 gold medals at three world championships, the most ever for a U.S. gymnast. All this and Biles hasn’t even made a U.S. Olympic team yet. To secure her spot on the U.S. team for the 2016 games in Rio, Biles, along with Gold medalist Gabby Douglass, will compete in the Olympic trials next July. The awards, hosted by NBC’s Natalie Morales, will air December 27 on NBCSN from 3-4 p.m. ET.
