Simone Biles has become, unsurprisingly, one of the biggest stars of the 2016 Olympic Games, earning a handful of gold medals and further strengthening her case as the greatest gymnast of all-time. Her almost unparalleled success can be attributed to an unbelievable amalgam of athleticism, agility and hard work, but a quick look at her enormous cheering section in Rio is a reminder that having a supportive family also helps. From her parents, Ron and Nellie, who adopted her when she was young, to her siblings, brothers Ron Jr. and Adam and sister Adria, to her extended family, it would be impossible to pinpoint the 19-year-old superstar's biggest fan.
