Simone Biles may be the headliner for the United States during the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. The 24-year-old gymnast is regarded as the world’s best and is considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time.
That’s part of the reason that she recently wore a goat on her leotard.
Biles will be participating in her second Olympics with Team USA. She helped lead the squad to a gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics and will look to do the same with three new teammates by her side in Suni Lee, Jordan Chiles and Grace McCallum.
Biles can become the oldest American woman to win the all-around gold at the Olympics. She also will have a chance to become the most decorated Olympic gymnast in history if she can take home four medals at the Tokyo Games. It’s a tall task, but it’s one that the GOAT could accomplish.
As such, many will want to see Biles in action as she looks to set records and continue to pull off moves that no other gymnast can. Here’s how you can do that during the 2021 Olympic Games.

What events will Simone Biles compete in at Olympics?
Simone Biles will be the leader for the United States in the women’s gymnastics team competition. She helped lead the team to a gold medal in that event during the 2016 Rio Olympics and will hope to do the same in 2021.
She will also look to win the all-around final, which occurs two days after the women’s final. Biles hasn’t lost an all-around title since 2013, so she is heavily favored to win this event.
Additionally, Biles will likely participate in the finals in each of the four events in Olympic competition. They are:
- Uneven bars
- Floor exercise
- Balance beam
Biles will have to qualify for the right to participate in these events, but it’s a foregone conclusion that the world’s best gymnast will be able to do that barring something unforeseen.
