Simone Biles becomes first American to win a medal at every World Championships event
Olympic champion Simone Biles continued her record-breaking winning streak on Saturday, becoming the first American ever to win a medal in every event at the world championships.
Biles became the most-decorated female gymnast in world championships history after winning four golds, a silver and a bronze medal this week, according to multiple reports.
Saturday marked the best meet of her life as she became the first woman in 30 years to win medals at all six events at the world gymnastics championships or Olympics, USA Today reported.
“I’m really pleased with my performances," 21-year-old Biles said after the meet. "Yes, I wish some of them could have gone better."
"I’m most proud that I’m here, made all of the event finals, medaled in all of the events, and I survived," she said.
Biles holds the record for most career world champion titles by a gymnast.

Give Simone Biles all the medals.
Now. And, if we’re being honest, again in two years at the Tokyo Olympics.
Biles capped off the best meet of her career with yet another milestone Saturday, claiming a gold on floor exercise and a bronze on balance beam to become the first woman in 30 years to win a medal on all six events at the world gymnastics championships or Olympics. For those keeping track, she leaves worlds with four golds, including a record fourth all-around title.
Oh, and she’s only a year and a day removed from her return to the gym after taking a year off following the Rio Olympics. If this is what she can accomplish in a year, imagine what she’ll do with the two years before Tokyo.
