When it comes to Olympic champion Simone Biles, just know there’s always more history to be made. 

At the U.S. Gymnastics National Championships on Sunday, the 21-year-old became the first woman to win five U.S. Gymnastics all-around titles. Biles also swept all four of the event titles, making her the first woman to do so since Olympic legend Dominique Dawes in 1994. 


“Being the first one to win all of the titles since Dominique Dawes is inspiring,”Biles said. “It’s kind of cool to follow that path.”

The win also makes Biles the oldest women’s all-around champion since 1971. 


Since first making history as the first Black woman to win a world all-around title in 2013, Biles has earned 16 gold medals across every discipline and become the most decorated U.S. gymnast of all time. She now has her sights set on the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, where we’re sure she’ll make even more history. 


Congratulations, Simone! Keep soaring!
