Simone Biles Rising

Series Premiere Date:
July 17, 2024

Synopsis:
Simone Biles has unfinished business. At the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, she was one of the biggest stories leading into the Games. But in sport, as in life, competitions do not always go as planned. And for Simone, the world had a front row seat as her private struggle with mental health exploded on the international stage - forcing her to withdraw from the competition. Since then, Simone has put in the hard work: facing the difficult traumas of her past, learning to manage her mental health, embracing her journey, and in the process, rebuilding her gymnastics from the ground up. Her courage to soar knows no bounds as this summer she plans to return to the Olympic stage once again to do what she's always done - be the best Simone that she can be. Because through it all, Simone still rises.

"We are all the authors of our own journeys, and I am in a place in my life where I'm comfortable with who I am and what I've been through as an athlete, but most of all, as a person. Gymnastics is what I do but it's not who I am, and I'm excited for people to see another side of me outside of competition. I know there are young girls out there who look to me for inspiration and are faced with similar challenges, and my hope is that this documentary helps to empower them to be true to who they are and never give up on their dreams. 'Still I Rise'" - Simone Biles

"Simone is a once-in-a-generation athlete who has not only pushed the boundaries of gymnastics, but also redefined the meaning of success by putting her mental health above medals and titles," said Katie Walsh, Director of Simone Biles Rising. "While her athletic abilities are unmatched, it's the human component to her story that I'm proud to share alongside the remarkable team at Religion of Sports." - Katie Walsh

"Simone Biles has won the hearts of fans across the world through her unparalleled excellence as gymnast, bravery in the face of public mental health struggles, and relentless determination," said Gotham Chopra, co-founder and Executive Producer at Religion of Sports. "This lovingly crafted series will not only inspire, but also amplify necessary conversations around the challenges athletes face with mental health." - Religion of Sports / Gotham Chopra
