U.S. gymnast Simone Biles is to make history with her jaw-dropping feats. Ms Biles her sixth U.S. Gymnastics Championships this week, only the second woman to this. This record was first set 67 years ago. The victory was also Biles' 20th consecutive, all-round major tournament win, back to 2013. However, it was her performances that further her name into the record books. On Saturday, Biles became the first gymnast to a double twisting, double somersault beam dismount, roars of delight from spectators. She that a day later by becoming the first woman to a triple-double (three twists and two flips) on the floor.
The 22-year-old Biles her customary post-competition modesty. Rather than her achievements, she her frustration at her mistakes. She told reporters she disappointed while falling after the triple-double. She said: "As soon as I on the floor, I was like, 'That's it, I'm the meet. I'm walking off the floor.'" Ever the perfectionist, she added: "I still really frustrated because I know...how well I can do, so I just to do the best routine for the audience and for myself out here." The plaudits came in following her performances. Former gymnast Nastia Liukin tweeted: "Simone's enough gold medals at home, someone give this girl a crown."
