Simone Biles is celebrating her growth as an athlete over the years.
The celebrated gymnast turned to her Instagram on Friday to engage in a Q&A session with her followers.
Amongst many questions, one fan also asked her about a moment that "marked you the most in your career."
Seemingly without much thought, Biles replied, "2021. having the courage to take care & put myself first."
"16 yr old simone would never," she added.
Biles withdrew herself from four out of five event finals in this year's Olympics, saying that her "mind & body are simply not in sync."
