Gymnast Simone Biles has made history. She won her sixth U.S. Gymnastics Championships - the second woman to do so. The victory was her 20th consecutive, major tournament win, going back to 2013. But, it was her jaw-dropping performances that put her into the record books. She became the first gymnast to land a double twisting, double somersault beam dismount, and the first woman to land a triple-double on the floor.

Ms Biles, 22, was her usual modest self with reporters. Rather than celebrate her records, she expressed frustration at her mistakes. She said: "I just want to do the best routine for the audience and for myself." She is a perfectionist and was disappointed after falling after her triple-double. The praise came flooding in following her routines. Former gymnast Nastia Liukin tweeted: "Simone's got enough gold medals at home, someone give this girl a crown."
