Simone Biles Wins Two More Gold Medals:


Simone Biles brings on the last day of the World Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart gold on the balance beam and the ground and is now with 25 World Cup medals sole record holder.

Even Biles is amazed at himself from time to time. "When I watch videos, I sometimes think, 'Oh my God, how did I do that?

She said on Thursday after her fifth world title in the all-around. It turns to maximum difficulties as if it were the simplest in the world.

Besides, she seems to have endless energy reserves, at least she showed on Sunday both the balance beam (15,066) and on the ground (15,133) her best exercise at these World Championships.

At the balance beam, she distanced the second-placed Chinese woman Liu Tingting by 0.633 points, on the ground she left her competitors behind by one and more points.

The fact that Biles is turning in its dimension is not new. Nevertheless, the 22-year-old American experienced a personal premiere in the atmospheric Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle, having never before won five gold medals at a World Cup - in 2014, 2015

And in 2018 she was on the podium four times, as well as at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Biles is the second athlete to do so after Russian Larissa Latynina (1958 in Moscow).

After the triumphs with the team and in the all-around competition, she had to be defeated in the equipment finals only on Saturday at the uneven bars (5th).

In terms of the number of World Cup medals, the only 1.42 m tall Biles surpassed the White Russian Witali Scherbo, who had achieved 23 podiums from 1991 to 1996.

Even more impressive is that 19 of the 25 awards are golden. Also, Biles showed in Stuttgart for the first time at an international competition two incredible elements:

On the ground the "Triple-Double", a Doppelalto perched with the integrated triple screw, and the balance beam as a finish a double Alto backwards with the double screw.

There are two more elements now named after her. A turn-memorial is on her for sure.
