Friendship Wins: Win Tickets to See Besties Simone Biles and Jordan Chiles in Boise
Name us two more talented besties than Biles and Chiles. Go ahead. We'll wait.
The story behind the bond between powerhouse gymnasts Simone Biles and Jordan Chiles, truly outshines whatever medals the duo wins at the Toyko Olympics. Without the encouragement of Simone, Jordan knows she wouldn't be competing in the team finals with Team USA. After being left off the team for the World Championship team in 2017 and a disappointing finish at the United States Gymnastics Championships in 2018, Jordan thought the sport had given up on her and almost left the sport completely.
That's when Simone reached out to the younger gymnast and told her how much potential she saw in her. After a long talk with Simone, Jordan not only decided to stick with the sport, but uprooted her entire life after high school to train with Simone at her gym in Spring, TX. Since Jordan made the move, the two of them have become nearly inseparable and allowed us to see just how special their friendship is through moments like these:
These posts celebrating each other's achievements are no doubt proof that when women support other women great things can happen! While medals are cool, you can see that when it comes to Biles and Chiles, friendship is the real prize. That's a value they hope to pass on to other young athletes.
That's why they're looking for examples of how "Friendship Wins" right here in the Treasure Valley! Using the form below, send us a video showing us what friendship means to you (or your young athlete.)
