Spieth America, one of the most trusted names in gymnastics equipment, announced today a long-term partnership with four-time all-around World Champion gymnast Simone Biles through 2028.


Widely regarded as one of the greatest gymnasts of all-time, Biles has trained and competed on Spieth’s industry-leading gymnastics equipment since 2012 and the long-term commitment speaks to their shared vision of promoting the sport of gymnastics. As part of the partnership, Spieth America will serve as the official equipment supplier of the Biles Invitational, one of the fastest growing women’s artistic gymnastics competitions in the United States. The 2020 Biles Invitational will be held at NRG Arena in Houston, Texas, where five competition floors will be utilized to accommodate up to 6,000 athletes.

“I believe the innovation and design built into Spieth America’s equipment has been a big part of my success,” Biles said. “I first started training with their equipment as a junior gymnast and am excited to build upon our partnership, as Spieth shares my commitment to taking gymnastics to new heights. Together, we can help promote a new era for the sport in the United States and around the world.”

Spieth is dedicated to helping gymnasts of all ages excel, by producing the safest, most innovative equipment in the world, enabling athletes to train harder, stay safer and recover faster. These are important attributes for Biles, who is renowned for a rigorous training regime that has taken her to the pinnacle of the gymnastics world, including four gold medals and a bronze in 2016 Rio Games.

“Simone is the ideal ambassador for Spieth America,” said Brent Poulsen, managing director and CEO for the company. “Her strength of character, engaging personality and drive for success are matched only by her commitment to helping fellow gymnasts reach their full potential. We share her enthusiasm for the future of this great sport and look forward to working with her for years to come.”

Spieth America, who first partnered with Biles in 2016, developed the Simone Biles Signature product line for home use. The equipment is designed to give young gymnasts access to fun, safe equipment that will allow them to build their skills along with their love of the sport. “We would like all gymnasts, of all ages, to be able to train and compete with the confidence and determination that Simone demonstrates,” said Bill Wild, CEO of Abeo North America, Spieth America’s parent company.

“We are focused on delivering innovative, high-quality equipment that allows athletes to push performance, train hard, stay safe and maximize their capabilities. Simone’s passion and hard work in the gym, paired with the character and enthusiasm she brings to the communities she is a part of, is an inspiration for all gymnasts–and for our industry.”
