"Kids today talk about faith, and I think it's OK for me to share my faith so kids can see how it helps you through the whole process," she said in an interview with The Houston Chronicle. 

Biles, the first African-American to become a world all-around champion, said ahead of the Olympics that she leans heavily on her Catholic faith before comeptitions. "Before a big event, I usually go to church and light a candle for St Sebastian, who is the patron saint of athletes." 

 

The 19-year-old gymnast won four gold medals and one bronze at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She's also the first woman to win three consecutive world all-around titles before the Olympic Games in Rio, and is the most decorated American female gymnast in world championships history.

 

Biled released her first book, Courage to Soar,  earlier this month and said she hopes it will inspire readers to pursue their dreams too.

 

"I want people to reach for their dreams. If you're willing to put in a lot of work, and if you're focused and determined, you can go really far," Biles said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. "There are so many people who have inspired me with their love and encouragement along the way — and I want to pass on that inspiration to readers."
