The state of Ohio should be extra proud of Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

She's a Buckeye.

Biles was born in Columbus on March 14, 1997, to Shanon Biles who struggled with substance abuse at the time.

Shanon eventually gave Simone and her younger sister, Adria, up to foster care, according to Essence.  

The girls were adopted in 2003 by Nellie and Ron Biles and raised  in Texas.

Ron is Simone and Adria's grandfather and Shanon's dad, according to CNN.

Simone won four gold medals and a bronze at the Rio Olympics and even got to meet Zac Efron.

Shanon Biles told TMZ that she has been sober since 2007.
