Simone Biles - and the rest of the US women's gymnastic team for that matter - hasn't had the happiest of times since the 2016 Olympics. Accusations of sexual abuse sent a team doctor to prison and huge shakeups in team leadership and the gymnastics organization. Athletes like Biles were outspoken about the abuse and how it was allowed to happen. With all of that going on the past couple of years, it's understandable why these gymnasts might not be at their best at top-level competitions. Think again.
Simone not only won her sixth all-around US gymnastics title at the National Championships over the weekend, she did it with a pair of first-ever moves. Watch below as Simone makes gymnastics history on the floor exercises as well as the balance beam. I am told that if she can successfully complete these moves at the World Championships in October, they will be named after her. It's only appropriate for perhaps the greatest gymnast from a nation known for producing the greatest gymnast. I can't wait until next summer and the Tokyo Games!
