She started her competitive prowess at the team final event – contributing to the USA on three events (VT, BB & FX). She put in three excellent performances to lead the team to their straight World title; winning by just over 5 whole points!
Of course Biles' competition wasn't over yet – far from it, in fact! She entered Thursday's individual all-around final knowing that she was on the cusp of claiming her third straight World title. Remaining composed and confident, she opened her night with an oustanding Amanar vault – tallying the highest of the event! Moving to bars, Simone was bracing herself for a gutsy performance – knowing this isn't her favorite piece. However, she swang through a confident routine.
Her third routine was on the notorious balance beam; an enemy to many during this competition. After a solid, assured program during the first half of the routine, she unfortunately put her hands down on her front tuck. Managing to finish up well, this fault didn't rendered too problematic, and she was still inline to defend her title. She finished her competition on the floor exercise. Evidently she had a bit too much nervous energy going into her second tumbling pass – launching her out of bounds! However, she recovered well and finished over a mark ahead of countrywoman Gabby Douglas. This result solidified Biles' 'threepeat' of all-around titles; winning from 2013 to 2015.
SO, WHERE DOES THIS RANK HER?
As a result, I feel that is safe to say that Simone has already stamped her mark on being 'One of the greatest gymnasts of 2010s', and perhaps of the 21st century! She is well within reach of claiming the 2016 Olympic AA title – which would prove a testament to all the hours of hardwork and previous competition results she has achieved!
