West Bend teen asks Olympian to prom
WEST BEND — Simone Biles took the country and the world by storm when she became the most decorated gymnast in the United States at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
It wasn’t just the hearts of America that she won over in her rise to fame during the games.
Noah Fehr, a junior at West Bend-Mallard High School was especially intrigued by Biles’ athletic ability and personality as golden as her Olympic medals.
“I just really liked watching her, and she has an interesting background and story,” said Fehr.
Fehr has always admired Biles’ athletic ability because he has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and postural orthostatic tachycardia.
The health conditions limit the teen from participating in athletics himself.
