2016 Olympic All-Around Gold Medalist, Simone Biles won her fourth world championship in Doha, Qatar despite two falls on beam and vault during the all-around competition.
Simone also made history on Thursday evening when she completed her new skill on vault, now called the Biles.
Simone picked up gold medals during the team competition, all-around, vault (event finals), and a silver medal on the uneven bars.
Biles earns her fourth World all-around title, setting a new record for most women’s World All-Around titles won by a single person, beating the previous record of three by Russia’s Svetlana Khorkina.
