Simone Biles is giving fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her road back to the Olympics in the new docuseries, Simone Biles Rising.

The official Netflix synopsis recalled the gymnast — who has seven Olympic medals to her name — withdrawing from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as her “mental health exploded on the international stage.”

“Since then, Simone has put in the hard work: facing the difficult traumas of her past, learning to manage her mental health, embracing her journey, and in the process, rebuilding her gymnastics from the ground up,” the synopsis reads. “Her courage to soar knows no bounds as this summer she plans to return to the Olympic stage once again to do what she’s always done – be the best Simone that she can be. Because through it all, Simone still rises.”

In the docuseries’ trailer, released by the streamer in June, Aly Raisman had nothing but praise for her former teammate. “I know that she’s expected to win all the Gold medals, but even the fact she’s trying to come back is really amazing,” Raisman said in a confessional.
