Simone Biles Wins Yet Another Gold Medal!
Simone Biles, America’s Olympic golden girl, has just finished up the gymnastics part of the competition and she has rounded up her trip to Rio with yet ANOTHER gold medal!
Simone Biles stood on the Rio podium for a record-tying fourth time after sweeping the competition in floor exercises with a score of 15.966. She became the first woman gymnast since 1968 to win four (out of six possible) gold medals at a single Olympic game.
All those Gold medals must be pretty heavy to wear at the same time!
Fellow American Aly Raisman earned the silver medal with a score of 15.5. Both of the U.S. gymnasts had stomped the competition this week with power tumbling and a new level of athleticism that has never before performed on that stage.
Needless to say, Biles has made history at these Olympic games. Biles will leave Rio as a breakout star and a major endorser. There have only been two other women who have won four gymnastics gold medals in a single Olympic year. Vera Caslavska of then-Czechoslovakia (1968) and Agnes Keleti of Hungary (1956) have all earned themselves the title of world’s best athlete, and now it is time for Biles to take on that torch!
