article imageReview: Simone Biles is the most awarded gymnast at World Championships Special

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 13, 2019 in Sports
American gymnast Simone Biles has a major reason to celebrate. She just won her 25th medal at the World Championship level.
As a result, Biles is the most decorated gymnast in the history of the World Championships. She just collected her 25th medal at the World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, where 19 of them are gold.
This month, Biles won gold medals at the World Championships in the individual all-around, the vault, balance beam, floor exercise and team (representing the United States).
She shattered Belarus gymnast Vitaly Scherbo's previous record of 23 world records, which has stood since 1996; moreover, she accomplished this feature in a five-year time period.
At the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Biles won a total of five medals for Team USA, four of which were gold (team, individual all-around, vault and floor exercise), and a bronze medal in the balance beam.
The 22-year-old athlete is looking forward to competing at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo next summer, in an effort to defend her Olympic titles (and hopefully, add more titles).
