Gymnast Simone Biles Makes History Hitting The 'Hardest Move In The World' At The U.S. Championships
Simone Biles continues to raise the bar in competitive gymnastics.
The four-time Olympic gold medalist made history on Monday (AEST) when she landed a triple-double during her floor routine at the United States championships. No one else has ever landed a triple-twisting double somersault in competition.
This came after Biles became the first person to land a double-double as part of a dismount on the balance beam on Sunday (AEST).
“I still get really frustrated because I know how good I am and how well I can do,” Biles said. “So I just want to do the best routine for the audience and for myself out here.”
The performance helped her take home first place in the All-Around competition, her sixth AA title in the U.S. championship.
She had the best score on floor, beam and vault while ranking third on the uneven bars.
Clara Schroth-Lomady is the only other American to win six national AA titles, which she accomplished in the 1940s and 1950s.
With the way Biles continues to innovate, however, she could win many more championships in the years to come.
Once again, Biles broke the internet with the insane move, as onlookers shared their amazement at the magical moment.
