Speedo, Polo Ralph Lauren and others have announced that they will cut ties with him.

Simone Biles, the brilliant gymnast who was too young to qualify for the 2012 Olympics, chose to continue her work and has dominated that sport since. Her decisions have produced 14 world championships and, most recently during the Olympics, she won four gold and one bronze medal. She also made a decision to serve as the U.S. flag bearer during the closing ceremony. With decision making like this, most would agree that her future is bright.
