Simone Biles, who never fails to rise to the occasion, won her sixth all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships on Sunday, and did a historic clean triple-double in floor exercise.
But the highlight of the competition was her history making performance on the balance beam on the first night of women’s competition on Friday when the 22-year-old became the first gymnast to ever attempt and land a double-twisting, double somersault dismount off the balance beam
Watch as the 22-year-old dismounts with two flips, two twists, and one glorious smile.
The skill will be named after Biles once she competes it at an international meet, such as this fall’s world championships.
