Simone Biles has done what still seems impossible to others, to create history, again! If that’s not enough, she did it twice in one night.

The 2019 U.S Gymnastics Championship was held over the weekend in Kansas City and let’s just say, Simone Biles is the Greatest Of All Times. 🐐

The first time that Biles performed a triple-double at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, she wasn’t pleased. After soaring through the air to complete two flips and three full twists on Friday, she stumbled.

The Olympic champion, however, gave the never before completed move another try on Sunday, and yes, she nailed it. An NBC replay showed she went so high, she was actually above its boom camera, which means someone could have parked an SUV on the floor and Biles would have cleared it easily. This is the first time a woman has done a triple double in competition.

Biles also made history by performing a double-double dismount- two twists and two somersaults- off the balance beam on Friday.

Biles has been triumphant in every meet she’s entered dating back to the 2013 nationals, often by large margins. This weekend’s performance secured her sixth U.S. title, tying a record that has stood since 1952.

Simone Biles also has more world titles than any gymnast, male or female.

Simone is undoubtedly the greatest her sport has ever seen and, no offense to the other top athletes right now but LeBron James, Mikaela Shiffrin, Serena Williams and Alex Morgan…she may be the best athlete in the world right now, too.

Congratulations Simone! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‡
