American gymnast Simone Biles has made history once again.
The 22-year-old won the individual all-around title at the 22nd World Championships Thursday.
The win is her fifth world all-around title and her 22nd world medal.
Biles scored 58.99 points across the balance beam, floor, vault and uneven bars, beating second-place finisher Tan Xijing of China by 2.1 points. The win broke Biles’ own record for women’s record margin of victory.
Sometimes you just have to put politics aside and take a moment to be astounded.
My gymnastics days are far behind me, but I can still get a thrill watching an athlete of this caliber do things that are far beyond the reach of the average mortal.
