American Simone Biles has become the first gymnast to win 13 world titles.

The 21-year-old won vault gold at the World Championships in Qatar.

It was her third world title in this year's Championships and she has now broken the all-time record set by Belarusian male gymnast Vitaly Scherbo in 1996.

On Thursday, Biles made history by becoming the first woman to pick up four all-around world titles after winning the team and all-around events.

The favourite for vault gold received a mark of 15.366 - ahead of Canada's Shallon Olsen and Mexico's Alexa Moreno.

She also picked up silver in the uneven bars - her first international medal on that apparatus.

Biles told BBC Sport: "I am very excited. I have worked especially hard on the uneven bars. I am proud of the outcome so far.

"The uneven bars medal is my favourite because I have worked so hard in that event."

The gymnast had not competed internationally since the 2016 Olympics, then on the eve of the Championships she was admitted to hospital with a kidney stone.

This was Biles 17th World Championship medal overall and she is three shy of the all-time record of 20, held by Russia's Svetlana Khorkina.

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.
