‘Best Gymnast Ever’ gets new title: most decorated female gymnast in history

‘Best Gymnast Ever’ gets new title: most decorated female gymnast in history

At 20 world medals, she is just three behind the most decorated gymnast, Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo, and could surpass that mark this year.

"I feel like I'm pretty pleased just because that's how I train beam, and it finally felt good to go out there and hit a beam routine like I train because I feel like every time I go up to compete beam, I just bomb it", Biles said to the Olympic Channel.

"Sometimes I wish there was somebody closer, but at the same time, I have to go up there and do what I came to do".

Biles, the prohibitive favorite in Thursday's individual all-around final, qualified for all four event finals.

It is hard to watch what gymnast Simone Biles is doing and not be in awe.

Biles said she was happy with her performance at the world championships.

Biles played a key role in a commanding performance by the US, earning the most points in three of the four disciplines - the vault, balance beam and floor.

Russia became the first team to get within six points of the United States since China at the 2015 world championships, something which pleased Russian gymnast Angelina Melnikova.

Biles walked away with her sixth national title after the competition, making her the first woman in almost 70 years to win that many accolades. "All of the teams have improved their difficulty over the last quad, and I think that's really exciting to see the strength that they have".

The US women claimed gold with a tally of 172.330, well ahead of the Russians who took silver with 166.529, while bronze went to Italy on 164.796.

China was fourth after a tough day for Liu Tingting, who fell twice on the uneven bars and again on the balance beam. - U.S. won the Gold medal ahead of Russia (Silver) and Italy (Bronze).

It was a big recovery for Italy, which qualified in last place for the final. The 17-year-old athlete is now the first South African woman to qualify for the Olympics at the World Championships without utilising African Continental birth.
