It's certainly been a good year for Simone Biles. After taking home another two medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics last summer, the 25-year-old gymnast announced her engagement to Jonathan Owens this past February, which she's been celebrating with plenty of romantic trips around the world.
Now, it looks like Biles has another reason to get pumped: U.S. President Joe Biden just named the gymnast as one of the 17 recipients of this year's Presidential Medal of Freedom. As a result, the athlete has made history as the youngest person to receive the honor.
The Medal of Freedom is one of the highest civilian awards in the United States, and it is presented in order to recognize “exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public or private endeavors.”
