Coco Gauff, of the United States, celebrates after defeating Timea Babos, of Hungary, in the second round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York.
Biles dominated the 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championship by claiming her fifth individual all-around world-title, this weekend, in the individual all-around competition and doing so by two full points. She also led the US women’s team to another first-place team finish.
I’m not going to lie; I think it’s because she’s black and happens to be the greatest gymnast that’s ever lived.
Cheered by fans, U.S. women romp through podium training at 2019 Worlds. It seems no one told the 500 or so spectators who showed up to follow the U.S. women’s every flip at the World Gymnastics Championships Tuesday night that the competition doesn’t actually begin until Friday.
The winning team in the Men’s 18+ category will win $1,000. The winning team in the High School Boys and Girls and Youth categories will win a Dick’s Sporting Goods gift certificate worth $100 for each player.
In a two day competition, Biles introduced two never-competed skills into the sport of women’s gymnastics: on the balance beam, dismounting a full-full and on the floor-exercise mounting a double-triple.
Among them, two short, but mighty athletes stand out — Lailah Danzy and Noah Davison. Currently towering under five feet, show a unique and keen level of focus, discipline, and natural talent in the sport of gymnastics at an early age.
