Simone Biles Wins Five Gold Medals At U.S. Gymnastics National Championship

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Simone Biles continues to make history as she scored a major win during the U.S. National Championship for women’s gymnastics. After her outstanding performance, Simone becomes the first American woman to win five all-around national titles. She also became the first woman since Dominique Dawes in 1994 to post the top score in every event before winning the national title, according to Vogue.

Simone Biles reportedly took first place in the vault, uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise, and the all-around. But it wasn’t just Simone’s performance that stole the show.

The Olympic gymnast wore a teal leotard for the survivors of sexual abuse, a group that includes Biles, who revealed in January that she is among the victims of former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. “It is for the survivors, and I stand with all of them,” she said.

Biles made history in 2016 after becoming the first woman to win four consecutive national championships in 42 years as well as the first American gymnast to earn 14 World Championships medals.
