Simone Biles Makes History With An Amazing “Double Double Dismount”

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles made gymnastics history on Friday night, as she was not only the first to ever attempt but also land a double twisting, double somersault dismount off the balance beam.

According to TeamUsa.org, the skill will be named after Biles once she competes with the dismount at an upcoming international meet — she landed it at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri. This marks the third skill named after her.

Earlier that day, she also attempted another first— a triple-twisting, double back in competition on the floor exercise, but she ended up coming up short.

Despite the five-time Olympic medalist and 14-time world champion making history, she said that she can’t help but focus on being the best.

As soon as I fell on floor, I was like, ‘That’s it. I’m scratching the meet. I’m walking off the floor,’” she said afterward. “But I’m happy with the way I ended the meet.”

Biles has already proved to be one of the best gymnasts of all-time. Now, she has a 1.75-point lead and is on track to win, yet again, another championship.
