With the end of 2016 quickly approaching, Google is releasing some end-of-year data. One aspect of this data indicates that out of the top trending people in the U.S. this year, Simone Biles was in the top 10!
With Donald Trump in the top spot, and Hillary Clinton in second, it’s a pretty big deal that the young Olympic gymnast is in the seventh spot! The athlete burst into the 2016 Rio Olympics, winning four gold medals and one bronze. She also made history as the first gymnast in a generation to win four gold medals in only one Olympic series.
