With 22 gold medals and three each of silver and bronze, Simone Biles is widely regarded as the greatest gymnast of all time, but she just keeps adding to her one-of-a-kind resume…
FIRST EVER DOUBLE-DOUBLE DISMOUNT
Biles pulled off a pair of firsts on her way to winning a record-tying sixth U.S. Gymnastics Championships title in Kansas City. First she nailed a crowd-pleasing double-twisting, double somersault dismount from the balance beam.
FIRST EVER TRIPLE-DOUBLE
On the final day of competition, she added an even more jaw-dropping. never-before-seen skill — a triple double to start off her floor routine.
What is a triple double you ask? It’s definitely not the kind that Russell Westbrook has made almost routine in the NBA. It’s a double backflip with three twists. Still confused? Watching the above video on loop may help make things clear.
