Simone Biles Becomes First American to Win Medals in Every Event at Worlds
A HUGE congratulations are in order for Simone Biles!
The USA gymnast continued to make history during day ten of the 2018 FIG Artistic Gymnastics Championships held at Aspire Dome on Saturday (November 3) in Doha, Qatar.
At the event, Simone became the first American ever – and the first woman in 30 years – to go 6-6, winning medals in every event. She secured gold on the floor exercise and bronze on the balance beam.
Additionally, she had already won golds in the team competition, all-around and vault, and silver on uneven bars.
Simone has now earned a total of 20 medals, matching the career record for a female gymnast, held by Svetlana Khorkina. Simone also has the record for most overall world titles ever, with 14.
“What a night… so many emotions… less than a year since I got back into training so I try not to be too hard on myself. Although I still placed 1st and MADE HISTORY I’m not entirely pleased with my performance. I’m still trying to find my confidence. But I won’t give up ? I’m proud of myself! —> now onto finals,” Simone shared on Instagram on Friday, adding on Saturday, “World silver bar medalist ? … I CANT BELIEVE IT.”
