People magazine has named Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, actor Sandra Oh, country icon Dolly Parton and the nation's teachers as its "2021 People Of The Year.”

"This year has been a transformative one, pushing us all to create something new and hopefully better for our lives,” the magazine said. "This issue reflects that spirt: Our People Of The Year cover stars have all led the way in their fields to help make the world a little bit better.”

Parton was cited for giving away millions of books and supporting Covid-19 research and Oh was celebrated for fighting anti-Asian hate and working on "transformative stories". People said Biles' focus on mental health "redefined what it means to win in sports”. And the nation's more than 3 million teachers have "gone above and beyond to ensure our nation’s kids have bright opportunities ahead”.
