One of my proudest moments was probably 2013 Worlds because I proved to myself that I could do things that I didn't think I could.

I have dual citizenship.

My first experience with gymnastics was when I was in daycare. We took a field trip to a gym, and I was hooked.

I have everything I need, so there are no blanks left unfilled.

Mentally, I have to get my body and mind in the right place before I start the routine, but once into the zone, it's like I turn on a switch. I envision myself doing the same thing for the Olympic Games.

I don't fear what will happen, but you just get ahead of yourself, like, 'Oh my gosh, I wish it would happen now.'

I'm not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps.

I love a good Netflix binge!

You can have fun and do well. Just let loose a bit.

I feel like I'm small and mighty and pack a powerful punch, just like Tide PODS.

If I disappoint someone, it's their loss for putting that expectation on me when they don't know me. I can't control what they want.

Growing up, it was kind of a struggle being small, since everyone would make fun of you - except for when it came to hide and seek: that's the only advantage I ever had!

I can only control what I do when I go compete.

It was a very long and hard decision. My dad kept telling me, 'You can always go to college, but you can't always go pro.' That made sense to me.

When we had free time in the Olympic Village, we got massages and rested while watching Netflix.

The support down here in Rio has been amazing - between my family, Team U.S.A. and Team Kellogg's, I've felt so much love. This whole experience has been a dream come true.

I just keep surprising myself, I guess.

It doesn't even matter if I don't win a self-gold - after every meet, I have pizza. Pepperoni pizza.

I'm thrilled that I was able to share my first Olympic Games experience with my U.S. teammates.

The floor exercise is a way to express your personality.

The sport is called artistic gymnastics. So you do have to be a little bit of an actress.

Before a big event, I usually go to church and light a candle for St. Sebastian, who is the patron saint of athletes.

There are goals that I have, and then I dream of it, and then I make it a reality. If I could crawl out of my skin and see it, it would be really amazing.

My mom, Nellie, got me a rosary at church. I don't use it to pray before a competition. I'll just pray normally to myself, but I have it there in case.

I would be like, 'Oh, my gosh, I wish I could go to prom.' But then I think, 'You know what? A lot of people can't say they've ever done what I do - they'll never have this opportunity.'

Gymnastics is just one part of my life, and I'm having as much fun with it as possible.

We've always had each other's backs in and out of competition. We support each other the most because we're the only ones that know what it's like to go through what we do, and so we can't be more thankful for each other. We're like sisters.

If I won gold in 2016, I think it would change my life.

Everything I do is in the gym, so I'm always in gym clothes. I'm excited to explore lifestyle clothes for a little bit.

I never felt I had questions or needed answers or had a part of me that was missing.

If I thought of gymnastics as a job, it would put too much stress on me.

I didn't really ever dream of going to the Olympics until after 2012.

I am like any typical teenager.

I spend a lot of time in the gym training, and Core Power is a great fit for my nutritional needs.

I tune it all out because if I let other people's stress get to me, then I stress myself out more than I need to.

My parents make sure we have everything we need so that we compete to the best of our abilities.

I don't necessarily have favorite brands.

Father served in the Air Force for 22 years.

At the end of the day, if I can say I had fun, it was a good day.

They're like, 'Oh, you did a...' and I'm like, 'I did a what?' No, I flipped twice. I twisted twice. They go, 'It's called a...' and I'm like, 'Why do I need to know that? I just need to go and do that.'

I didn't get the high school opportunity, but it always worked out.

I don't do bugs.

I'm not a celebrity. I'm just the same Simone. I just have two Olympic Gold medals now.

Everything is possible at any one competition.

I'm always trying to push myself to the limit to see what I can do. It's my strong will that I've always had since I was a kid.

Most athletes get intimidated once they see how many fans are out there, but it almost calms me down in a way because I think of it as a fun way to show off what I've been working on.

I take things one step at a time.

I feel like it's harder because everyone knows I'm the three-time world champion - it's almost like people are waiting for something bad to happen.

As a kid growing up, I was never like, 'I want to go to the Olympics,' so having to pass on 2012 because I was too young didn't bother me at all.
