Simone Biles created history at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri with her brilliant performance and reasserted her position as the world s unrivalled number one gymnast. With this win, she went on to become the first woman in nearly 70 years to capture six U.S. senior women s all-around gymnastics titles.
Biles, who went ahead with the triple-twisting, double back manoeuvre during the final night of the US women s gymnastics championships, also became the first women to attempt and land a triple-double off a high beam.
Biles’ stunning floor routine left people impressed, with many taking to social media to praise the 22-year-old gymnast. Moreover, a slow-motion video of her performance has also gone viral, leaving many dumbfounded.
