The women's qualifying round starts on 25 July. Simone has become one of the greatest gymnasts in the world, but as well as reshaping the world of gymnastics, she was also named to HELLO!'S Kind List as in her spare time she puts her heart and soul into helping foster children.

Partly growing up in foster care herself, it's a cause close to Simone and in 2016, she teamed up with Mattress Firm to support their Foster Kids programme, which has donated more than 610,000 items such as clothes and school supplies to foster kids and their families.
