Simone Biles just made history. Again.The 22-year-old just became the first gymnast to ever attempt and land a double-twisting, double somersault dismount off the balance beam, according to Team USA.It’s jaw-dropping.
It seriously doesn’t get old.The five-time Olympic medalist and 14-time world champion completed the move on Friday at the 2019 US Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri. Earlier in the day, Biles became the first woman to attempt a triple-double — two flips and three twists in the air — in competition during the floor exercise. But the gymnast just missed the landing, falling forward.Biles expressed frustrations after her miss, saying she was “pissed off,” according to Team USA.But just a few hours later, she completed the double-double dismount, so it doesn’t seem as though the star is letting anything hold her back.Biles is currently in first place at the two-day competition, almost two points ahead of the second-place contender. The tournament will continue on Sunday, and Biles is expected to win her sixth US title, something that no woman has done since Clara Schroth Lomady in 1952.
