Nerves of steel: Unstoppable Simone Biles leads USA to fifth consecutive world title
Multiple world and Olympic champion Biles nailed all four routines, making up for her less experienced teammates who were a bit shaky on the uneven bars and beam.
The 22-year-old American showcased insane difficulty along with solid execution to post the highest scores on three out of four apparatuses, establishing herself as the favorite to take the all-around gold in Stuttgart.
The most decorated gymnast in US history, who is eying a record-breaking fourth all-around title, wowed the German crowd with her signature double-double dismount on a beam and insane triple-double combo on floor.
Biles made a significant contribution to her team’s world triumph, adding unbelievable scores to the team’s results, including 15.400 for her vault, which was the highest score of the day.
Team USA led by Biles took gold in the women’s final posting 172,330 points.
Russia finished second, almost six points behind their American counterparts, and Italy finished third with 164,796 points.
