Simone Biles is  proud of her  growth 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."
