Simone Biles switches to Athleta from Nike in a surprise move! Athleta is a womenswear company and is owned by the GAP Corporation.
In an Instagram post, Biles explained that she chose Athleta since, “they are committed to diversity and inclusion, which was really important for me.”
“As I take my next step in my career, it was super important for me to align myself with a partner who supports me, not just as a gymnast or an athlete, but for the individual that I am and the change I want to create,” added Biles.
Hopefully her switch to Athleta from Nike will result in the star reaping many rewards.
