‘Is it humanly possible?’ US gymnast Simone Biles hits insane triple-double on floor (VIDEO)
The four-time Olympic champion, who possesses the highest difficulty on floor exercise in the world, nailed a never-seen-before combo that hasn’t even been performed by men.
The 22-year-old threw an unbelievable triple-twisting combination with a double flip (triple-double) before successfully landing it on a gymnastics mat, which is allowed at the national championships.
Biles’ insane routine earned praise and admiration from gymnastics lovers who said the newly devised floor routine was “humanly impossible.”

“No kidding – she gets 8 feet in the air from the ground? If I hadn’t seen it I would not believe it’s humanly possible. Incredible,” one user wrote.
