The US Gymanst Champion, Simone Biles is now setting new benchmarks. She’s on a previously unconquered 6 year winning streak and doesn’t look like stopping. She has now won 19 straight all-rounds conquering the U.S. Classic on Saturday.
Simone Biles name is now written in sparkling silver beads at her World Champions Centre leotard. She didn’t disappoint at all commendably living up to her billing at the top.
Simone Biles at the top of the pile
Simon Biles has now 4 Rio Olynpic Golds along with 4 U.S. titles. She had a two year gap but came back storming into the U.S. Classic last year. She defeated Riley McCusker comfortably by 2-1 scoring 60 points at Louisville. This was also her best performance in a U.S.Classic.
“I’m very satisfied,” she said on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA. “I’m a little sad that I went out of bounds on floor [exercise], but overall I feel like there are improvements to be made.”

Nationals preps in full swing
Simone Biles is now preparing all out for the nationals in Kansas City next month. Her record breaking spree has spurred her just a title away from equally Clara Schroth Lomady‘s. Simone Biles is undoubtedly a modern day legend with Lomady’s streak coming way back in AAU era in the 1940-50s.
She also has the chance to move closer to Kochei Umara’s record in world championships later this year. Biles’ other teammates are only providing her competition. She is head and shoulders above the rest of the world.
TIL If Simone Biles wins the All-Around Gold Medal in Tokyo 2020, she will be the first gymnast to win two back-to-back All-Around Olympic Titles since Věra Čáslavská did it in 1968 (52 years ago). from Gymnastics
Her 2018 teammates Kara Eaker and McCusker beat her on the balance beam on Saturday. While they did come close to Simone Biles but she’s on a different level.
Simone Biles clean swept all the golds at last year’s U.S. Nationals. If she continues to sweep titles for fun, it won’t be long when she becomes G.O.A.T of gymnastics.
