Simone Biles Makes Gymnastics History!

Simone Biles continues to prove she’s one of the all-time gymnastics greats, this time winning her sixth U.S. title on Sunday. The 22-year-old champ not only picked up a major win, she stunned with routines that included spectacular moves that have to be seen to be believed!

Simone nailed a triple-double, which she’s reportedly called “the hardest move in the world,” becoming the first woman ever to land the move on the floor exercise in competition. In addition to pulling off that impressive accomplishment, she also did a double-double somersault dismount off the balance beam on Friday — another unprecedented feat! If she sticks the move in an international meet, the skill will be named after her.

Simone is the first woman in almost 70 years to win six U.S. all-around titles. She’s already a five-time Olympic medalist, gearing up for an upcoming meet in Germany this October.

“I feel like you should never settle just because you are winning or you are at the top,” Biles told the New York Times during training last week. “You should always push yourself.”
