Olympic Winner Simone Biles Crushes The Entire World Championships Leaving With A Win In Every Event

Simone Biles becomes the first African-American to win a medal in each event at the World Championships

At just 21-years old, Simone Biles, the record-breaking Olympian continued to do what she does best; win.

Biles continued her winning streak this Saturday, becoming the first African-American to win a medal in every event at the world championships. That’s not it for Biles; she is also the most decorated female gymnast in world championships history. As we collect our jaws off the ground over here, let us count the ways she left her competition behind. Biles racked up this week winning four golds, silver, and a bronze medal.

It has been 30 years since another female gymnast has won medals in all six events a the world championships, according to USA Today. After her performance Biles had this to say:

“I’m really pleased with my performances. Yes, I wish some of them could have gone better. I’m most proud that I’m here, made all of the event finals, medaled in all of the events, and I survived.”

Biles took some time off after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She also made headlines after going public with sexual assault allegations against her former Olympic doctor, Larry Nassar. That obviously didn’t stop Biles from annihilating rising above her competition. Doing what she does best, Biles currently holds the record for most career world champion titles by a gymnast. Don’t worry; we’re still collecting our jaws off the ground too.
