Simone Biles caps worlds as most decorated female gymnast ever

Simone Biles, after 14 months away from the sport and while carrying a kidney stone, finished the best major gymnastics meet of her life on Saturday.

Biles became the most decorated female gymnast in world championships history with four golds, a silver and a bronze in Doha this week. She matched retired Russian Svetlana Khokrina‘s record 20 career medals, but owns the tiebreaker with a record 14 golds.

“If you look at how many world medals I have, and then Olympics, it’s just like, how old is this chick? She needs to leave!” joked the 21-year-old Biles, who returned to training last November after four golds in Rio. “I’m really not that old yet.”

Biles, with floor exercise gold and balance beam bronze on Saturday, became the first gymnast to earn medals in every event at worlds in 31 years. And the fourth in history to earn medals in every event at an Olympics or worlds with at least four gold medals.

The others were Soviet Larissa Latynina‘s five-gold, one-silver effort at 1958 Worlds (while four months pregnant), Czech Vera Caslavska‘s four-gold, two-silver haul at the 1968 Mexico City Games and Soviet Ludmilla Tourischeva at 1974 Worlds (four gold, one silver, one bronze).

Only Vitaly Scherbo and Kohei Uchimura have more world medals than Biles with 23 and 21. Expect Biles to snatch that record next year in Stuttgart, Germany....

Auburn gymnast dislocates both knees in horrific accident in her final meet

Auburn Tigers senior gymnast Samantha Cerio suffered a gruesome and devastating injury in what will be her final performance. At the NCAA Regional Semifinals, Cerio landed awkwardly, dislocating both knees and tearing multiple ligaments.

Cerio injured herself while performing a handspring double front. The maneuver required Cerio to pull off a blind landing, which means she was unable to see the ground before she landed.

Cerio reached for the ground too early, according to Auburn coach Jeff Graba. That led to dislocated knees and multiple torn ligaments. Initial reports claimed Cerio also broke both legs, but further exams revealed that was not the case.

There is video of Cerio’s injury, but be warned that it is extremely graphic. If you would like to watch the video anyway, you can do it here....
Yikes! :puke-left:

I have twice relocated knees on dance floors, but there was no traumatic impact like she suffered. I'm sure that she had to wait for x-rays to rule out fractures before an MD did the relocations.

I haven't had the nerve to watch. Terrible injury but at least they are no longer saying 2 broken legs.

Yeah, probably don't watch, then, easy to assume that it was 2 broken legs.

Simone Biles Makes History Again With Jaw-Dropping Beam Dismount
The Olympic champion became the first gymnast to land the double-twisting, double somersault move.


... Biles, the most decorated U.S. gymnast of all time, ended her nearly 1.5-minute routine with the incredible move at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championship in Kansas City, Missouri.

The dismount will be named after Biles once she completes it during an international meet, Team USA said in a press release....

The 22-year-old almost made history earlier Saturday during her floor routine when she attempted to perform a triple-double ― two flips and three twists in the air. But she fell forward as she landed, touching the mat with her hand.

Despite a few missteps, Biles is expected to take home her sixth U.S. title on Sunday, tying Clara Schroth Lomady’s record set in 1952.

Watch her incredible performance on the beam below:

:shock: :crazy: :clap: :-||

Simone Biles makes more history at U.S. Gymnastics Championships

One night after becoming the first person ever to land a double-double dismount at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, Simone Biles continued to make jaws drop on Sunday with more history.

Biles became the first woman to land a triple double (two flips and three twists) in competition on the floor during her routine:

Here is a slo-mo. This is art:

Are we sure that she is human? ...

Saw that, looked like doing just one leg limited leverage and allowed slippage back down.
