Simone Biles has dominated the 2016 Olympics. That continued on Tuesday as she secured her fourth gold medal of the Rio Games by winning the floor exercise. The 19-year-old three-time world champion has solidified her status as the greatest American gymnast of all-time by winning five medals over the past week, four gold and one bronze.
Biles stuck her floor routine which has a ridiculous level of difficulty, and turned in a score of 15.966. Teammate Aly Raisman also nailed her routine and won a silver with a 15.500. Britain’s Amy Tinkler was third with a 14.933.
I’ll be honest, I know next to nothing about gymnastics and have almost zero interest in the sport, but Simone Biles has been must-watch television in Rio. The girl is an incredible athlete and everything she does is mind-boggling. Just the height she gets on her tumbling passes is astonishing.
Don’t believe me? Watch:
And for the sake of comparison, here’s Raisman’s routine:
Along with Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps, Biles has been the story of the Rio Olympics. She won golds in the team competition, the individual all-around, the vault and the floor exercise, while getting a bronze on the balance beam. She’s been amazing, and even if gymnastics isn’t your thing, she’s been wildly entertaining and worth paying attention to.
