Simone Biles Is the Greatest American Gymnast of All Time
After soaring to the top, her winning streak isn’t over just yet.
On Sunday, August 14, Simone Biles became the most decorated American gymnast — male or female — ever. She cinched the title following her gold-medal win for the women’s vault, her third so far during this year’s Olympics. That makes for her seventeenth international medal over the course of her professional career, dating back to 2013. Shannon Miller, who collected 16 medals between 1991 and 1996, is the previous record holder.
But Simone isn’t done defying gravity and sustaining her winning streak just yet. The 19-year-old will compete in two more events in Rio and continue to make history, we’re sure.
