Simone Biles Ends Her Contract Deal with NIKE

Olympic Gold Medalist and Gymnist extrodinaire, Simone Biles, has ended her multi-year deal with Nike to possibly sign with Athleta. We’re told thats because the women’s activewear brand owned by Gap, more closely aligns with her values.

“I felt like it wasn’t just about my achievements; it’s what I stood for and how they were going to help me use my voice and also be a voice for females and kids,” she told the Wall Street Journal. “I feel like they also support me, not just as an athlete, but just as an individual outside of the gym and the change that I want to create, which is so refreshing.
