Why Simone Biles has been named one of the world’s greatest athlete- (we break it down)

Women in gymnastic usually play about 4 major competitions

1) The vault

2) uneven bars

3) The balance beam

4) The floor exercises

Simone Biles is the first gymnast in history to be dominant in all four categories.

Since she went professional in 2013, she has dominated the sport to the extent she became her only competition.

The Biles

Her signature move so difficult that its never been done by any gymnastic athlete. the move was named THE BILES because she is the first to attempt it . The Biles was officially entered into the International Federation of Gymnastics’ Code of Points in 2013 .

Before she went for the Olympics game in 2016- she was already a trailblazer with 4 US all round championships, 3 world all round championships, the first woman to win 4 gold medals at a world championships since 1974.

The press and the gymnastic US gymnastic team were full of expectation- they were not disappointed…

She finished the Olympic games with 4 gold medals and one bronze

After the Olympics games she took two years off the sports, and when she came back in 2018, she went back to her throne without a coup

In 2018, after a long break from the sport, she returned to play- she won her 5th US all round championship, but did not stop there, she also won the world all round championship – making her the first woman to win the world title 4 consecutive times

Simone Biles continued her dominance into 2019 by creating two new moves

At the US national championships, she broke two new records

  • First double double dismount on beam in competition ever
  • First female in history to do a triple double on the floor

After winning the US national championship of 2019 Biles has become the first woman in 70 years to win six all-around titles-  2013 2014 2015 2016 2018 2019

the first woman who ever did that was Clara M. Schroth (1945 1946 1949 1950 1951 1952) – at a time in America when Black people in America were fighting for equal rights.

Simon Biles in summary is the greatest gymnast of all time and presently the most dominant athlete in the world right now

25 Olympic and world championship medals. First woman to win four World all-around titles (2013, 2014, 2015, 2018)

Simon Biles is a gift to the black race. #ourown #blackgirlmagic.
