Simone Biles Makes History As First Woman To Earn 4 All-Around World Gymnastic Titles
Simone Biles has made history by earning the title of being the first woman to win four all-around world titles on Thursday. The gymnast competed during the 2018 FIG Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Doha, Qatar against Japan’s Mai Murakami and USA teammate Morgan Hurd. Although Biles won and made history, throughout her performance she steppd out of bounds and falling twice during her all around final. After winning, the athlete is beating herself up about how she won,
It’s not the gymnast that I am, to go out there and kind of bomb a meet like this,” said Biles after posting an all-around score of 57.491. “Even though I won, I wish it were a little bit different. It just sucks that I did so bad and I still won. I wish it could not happen. You have to earn it, and I’m not sure I earned it tonight.
She took to Instagram to bask in the moment, as well. She shared,
what a night… so many emotions… less than a year since I got back into training so I try not to be too hard on myself. Although I still placed 1st and MADE HISTORY I’m not entirely pleased with my performance. I’m still trying to find my confidence. But I won’t give up. I’m proud of myself! —> now onto finals
Biles’ overall score was 57.491, the win also comes by the way of Biles taken a year off after winning five medals at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
