Simone Biles Captures Third Straight Gold Medal at Gymnastics World Championships
Winning one all-around title at the gymnastics world championships is hard once, think about doing it three times. That’s what Simone Biles accomplished yesterday (October 29) in Glasgow Scotland.
The talents of Biles were able to hide some missteps that occurred during her performance, which Huffington Post notes was full of a lot of high difficulty maneuvers, in order to remain unbeaten.
The competition held some stiff competition as Biles surpassed the total that was placed by another popular American and champion Gabby Douglass by 1.083 points, who brought home the silver.
The gold medal that was won by Biles added to her unbeaten streak since 2013 accomplishing the popular sports term three-peat.
“Everyone wanted the three-peat and I wanted it, so tonight I felt the pressure it wasn’t my best meet,” Biles stated. “What surprises me is that it was a bad meet for me and to still come out on top with the largest margin of victory was really crazy because I could have done so much better.”
Winning the bronze medal was Larisa Iordache of Romania.
