Simone Biles of Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre, has been nominated for the Team USA Awards presented by Dow, Best of August, which recognize the outstanding achievements of Team USA athletes from last month. Fans can vote for Biles online through midnight Monday, Sept. 9.

At the 2019 U.S. Championships, Biles won her sixth U.S. all-around title, earned three gold medals and a bronze in individual events and performed two skills never before performed by a female gymnast in competition: a double-double dismount on beam and a triple-double on floor. She became the first woman in nearly 70 years to win six senior U.S. all-around titles, tying with Clara Schroth Lomady who won the all-around from 1945-46 and 1949-52.
