Simone Biles, 22

Biles became the most decorated American gymnast — male or female — of all time at the 2016 Rio Olympics. At the time, Biles had four Olympic gold medals and one bronze. Since then, she did not relent in her effort to crush it on and off the mat.

In 2017, she landed the Cheng vault – one of the most difficult vaults in gymnastics which is typically only done by men.

2018 did not lose out Bile’s awesomeness. She was named ESPN the Magazine’s “Most Dominant Athlete” of 2018 and she also became the most decorated gymnast in world championship history.
