Ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics, one incredible athlete is looking at her life and everything it took to get to where she is today.

As the most decorated gymnast in history, Simone Biles is famous for winning seven Olympic medals throughout her career in the sport. She is also well-known for choosing to withdraw from competing in the middle of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in July 2021, where she was considered the one to beat for the all-around gold medal. At the time, she cited that her choice to step back came from "the twisties," where she experienced a loss of body awareness while performing her gymnastic moves while in the air. This led her on a journey that involved prioritizing her mental health, and making her re-think her choice to return to the sport.

Today, Simone is currently gearing up to compete in the 2024 Olympic Team Trials, and we'll know soon if she's headed to Paris. But she's also getting ready to release her first-ever Netflix docuseries titled Simone Biles Rising.

"She’s the greatest in the world. She’s also human," read the caption on June 19 Instagram promoting the series. "SIMONE BILES RISING, a Netflix sports series documenting one of the most powerful comebacks in history, premieres July 17."

Upon learning the news of Simone's latest venture, fans couldn't hold back their excitement to see her on their screens in a new way.

"Human first. Athlete second. Doing this for herself 🤍," one person wrote in the comments. "Full body chills into actual tears 😭. YOU GO GIRL!" another penned. "I am so thankful I am alive during her reign! Truly NO ONE like her!" a different follower added.

As for how Simone feels about her road to going back to the Olympics, she said it succinctly at the end of the trailer, which was posted on YouTube. "I wanted to quit like 500,000 times, and I would have if it weren’t for my people," she stated. "I feel very grateful I get to write my own ending."

We can't wait to watch it!
