Simone Biles’ newest file second might be her most breathtaking
Simone Biles looks unstoppable ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The 24-year-old gymnast won her seventh all-around title in a row at the US Gymnastics Championships in Ft. Worth, Texas on Sunday June 6th.
She has remained undefeated at the national championships since 2013 and became the first American to win the title seven times, breaking her draw Clara Schroth Lombardywho competed in the late 1940s and early 50s. Alfred Jochim (1925-30, 1933) is the only other American gymnast to accumulate seven titles.
During the weekend event, Simone collected a total of 119,650 points and, in addition to the all-around competition, also won the jump, balance beam and floor titles.
Suni Lee ended up in second place with 114,950 while Jordan Chile, who is Simone’s training partner, came in third with 114,450.
All three athletes are more likely to occupy three of the four places on the US team, which will fight for its third Olympic gold medal in a row at the 2020 Tokyo Games, which have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Olympic trials for the team will take place from June 24th to 27th.
