"I think people forget that Simone is legitimately doing death-defying moves. She makes everything look so easy but there's a reason why no one else even attempted to do them, they're literally THAT dangerous. She's a once-in-a-lifetime athlete and the greatest in the world."
2. Renee Gloss
"Simone immediately after dominating the competition going over and telling her teammate to be proud of herself and that she deserves to be there, literally made me cry. Simone is not only the greatest gymnast but she's also such a great person as well"
3. Mark Andrews
"her strength, poise, technique, skill-set, initiative, drive, instinct, passion, vision, vibe, smile, light, beauty, relatability, mentorship, are all truly second to none! the embodiment of a role model in every sense of the word!!!"

5. Legion Ivory
"I love how she encouraged Jordan ever after literally becoming a 7-time champion just seconds prior. That is a true athlete. 💯"
6. Quinton J
"I like that she’s humble and that’s she trying to bring the next girls up with her. She knows when it comes to the Olympic Games she can’t win the all around gold alone. So encouraging her teammates and keeping them going is a must as well. That’s true leadership."
7. Elizabeth Culver Edwards
"Simone is completely unique in that she knows she is good, but she also knows her teammates are good and is vocal about it. She's making sure that her teammates are being seen and ranked along with her. I just don't know who else in this level of competition does things like that!"
"The control and grace she shows with each move she does is really incredible. The amount of training and dedication she must give to achieve her level of skill and athleticism is just staggering."
"Brava, Simone! You show amazing skill, fortitude, concentration, discipline, and deserve all your accolades. Wishing you all the best for the Olympics."
