US Gymnast Simone Biles makes history-making dismount at Gymnastics Championships

Must See 12/08/2019

US gymnast Simone Biles has become the first gymnast in history to attempt - and land - a double-twisting, double somersault dismount off the balance beam.

The 22-year-old performed the jaw-dropping move to end her routine at the 2019 US Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri on Friday (local time). 

Biles is no stranger to acclaim as a five-time Olympic medalist and 14-time world champion. She has been called the greatest American gymnast of all time.

Earlier on Friday, Biles also became the first woman to attempt a triple-double (two flips and three twists in the air) competitively during the floor exercise. However she failed to land the incredible stunt, 7News reports.
