Simone Biles Wins 4th World Gymnastics All-Around Title
Despite falling twice — and a trip to the ER last week for a kidney stone — the American gymnast became the first woman to win four all-around titles. Biles secured first place with 57.491 points, a record 1.693-point margin over Japan’s Mai Murakami, at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships yesterday in Doha, Qatar. “Didn’t mean to give everyone a heart attack,” the 21-year-old later tweeted. The four-time Olympic gold medalist competes today on the vault and uneven bars, and on balance beam and floor exercise Saturday.
