Four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles is now the most-decorated female gymnast in history after winning her 21st medal at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
The 22-year-old won her 21st medal at the world gymnastics championships on Tuesday, October 8, as the United States retained their women’s team all-around title.
Biles’ latest win has seen her break a tie with the Russian gymnast Svetlana Khorkina for the most medals by a woman at the world championships. She’s now two short of Vitaly Scherbo’s all-time record among men or women of 23.
The US team reportedly scored 172.330 points to beat second-placed Russia by 5.801 points and win their seventh consecutive team crown at an Olympics or world championships.
Biles posted the best individual scores on the vault, balance beam, and floor.
