"After winning five out of six possible gold medals in the Artistic Gymnastics World Championship last week, US gymnast Simone Biles has set a new record – the gymnast who’s won the most medals ever.
Last week’s competition in Stuttgart, Germany was organized by FIG, the international group in charge of the sport of gymnastics. Ms. Biles, 22, easily led the competition, taking first in beam, vault, floor routine, as well as all-around and team medals. On the bars, Ms. Biles came in fifth.
By taking five gold medals, Ms. Biles brings her total number of world championship medals to 25. Before that, the record was 23, set by Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo in the 1990s. Nineteen of Ms. Biles’s medals have been gold medals.
Ms. Biles helped the US do well as a team, too. The US beat Russia by 5.8 points to take their fifth team world championship gold medal in a row.
Even Ms. Biles seems amazed at what she’s been able to achieve. “Sometimes I wonder how I do it,” she says.
When gymnasts compete, they do a series of challenging acrobatic moves either on a mat (floor routine) or using a piece of equipment, such as the beam, vault, or bars."
