Simone Biles Wins Floor Exercise For Fourth Gold Medal In Rio

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 statusĀ 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.
