BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Simone Biles, U.S. Olympic gymnast and member of Team Kellogg's, took the gold medal yesterday in the floor competition, bringing her total to five total medals at the Olympic Games. Biles finished with a score of 15.966 in the floor competition to win gold, adding to her collection of gold in the team competition, individual all-around and vault competitions, as well as bronze on balance beam.
"I'm thrilled that I was able to share my first Olympic Games experience with my U.S. teammates," said Biles. "The support down here in Rio has been amazing – between my family, Team USA and Team Kellogg's I've felt so much love. This whole experience has been a dream come true."
