Simone Biles is continuing to stun us all with her graceful performances, snatching the gold in the women’s individual all-around in the Rio de Janeiro Games Thursday, the New York Times reports.
She is literally the world’s best gymnast and also literally #BlackGirlMagic.
Though, that may not come as a surprise to those familiar with the gymnast’s career. Biles, as USA Today notes, has won every all-around competition she has entered since August 2013, including four consecutive titles in the U.S. She has won the past three all-around competitions at the World Championships.
Just on Tuesday, she helped lead the “Final Five” to a gold medal in the team competition.
Teammate Aly Raisman took home the silver Thursday, while Russia’s Aliya Mustafina won bronze.
Gabby Douglas, who was the reigning champion from the 2012 Games, was unable to defend her title due to the “two-per-country” Olympic competition rule.
