Simone Biles Becomes Most Decorated Gymnast In World Champ History
We stan a dedicated queen like Simone.
I've never been a gymnast but dang. Gymnastics is one of my favorite sports to watch because the amount of talent, skill and dedication that they must put in is insane. Any athlete has to appreciate it.
Simone Biles became the most decorated overall, male or female, gymnast in world championship history on Sunday after collecting her 24th and 25th gold medals at the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany.
The 22-year-old won five gold medals out of a possible six in the competition, failing to take first place only on the uneven bars, where she placed fifth.
After breaking the record for the most world medals by a female gymnast earlier in the week, her total medal tally now places her ahead of Belarusian male gymnast Vitaly Scherbo, who won 23 world medals in the 1990s.
Five out of six gold in one competition?! Plus she's only 22, so we know she's got plenty of time to take that lead even further. "It's older than my age, so I'm pretty thrilled with it," she said about her 25 gold medals.
