Simone Biles broke the all-time record for most medals by any gymnast by winning the balance beam competition at the world championships in Stuttgart on Sunday.

Simone Biles is The Most Decorated Gymnast Ever

Simone Biles just made history again by winning her 24th world championship medal to become the most decorated gymnast, male or female, ever. Her flawless performance on the balance beam earned her a massive 15.066 points on Sunday at the 2019 World Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. 

Biles’ 25th world championship gold medal extended her lead as the most decorated gymnast of all time. She finished with five gold medals in the all-around, team, vault, balance beam and floor competitions. It was the most successful world championships of her career. Her 2.1 points buffer in the all-around final was the largest victory margin of her career, and she won her gold medal on the floor exercise by a point – meaning she could have fallen and still won.

Simone has been dubbed “the most talented gymnast of all-time”

Simone Arianne Biles was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, OH. Biles was always jumping around at a young age and was introduced to the sport on a school field trip to Bannon’s Gymnastix at the age of six, where she began spontaneously imitating the gymnasts’ moves, insisting that her parents enroll her at the gym. 

Her big grin and engaging personality shine through both in and out of the sport and while she trains close to 35 hours per week, Biles knows how to keep things fun and is known for inventing new skills during training. One move, a complex flip that she incorporated into her floor routine during the 2013 World Championships, is now known as the "Biles". Simone trains at World Champions Centre (WCC), a gym founded and owned by her parents in Spring, TX.

The most decorated gymnast of all time, Biles has the talent and competitive spirit necessary to become one of the best gymnasts in the history of the sport. Receiving high praise from peers and Olympic legends alike, Simone has been dubbed “the most talented gymnast of all-time”.
