    American Gymnast Simone Biles Just Made History At The World Championships

    Mark my words, the unstoppable American gymnast is going to win all the gold medals at the 2016 Olympics.

    Can everyone pause all activity for a minute? We need to discuss an individual of national, nay, global importance. Her name is Simone Biles.

    Actually, let me rephrase: this is three-time All-Around World Champion ✨ Simone Biles ✨.

    Is it possible to legally add the sparkle emoji to your name? If so, Simone should consider it.

    The Columbus, Ohio native stunted oh-so-casually on October 29 when she became the first woman to capture three consecutive gold medals in the all-around segment of the World Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

    That means she earned the highest combined score in four events: floor, beam, vault, and uneven bars. NBD.

    Wait, there's more: Guess who won the silver medal in the all-around category? That other American gymnastic superstar, Gabby Douglas!

    BRB, suffering a #blackgirlmagic overload.

    There was plenty of support from the gymnastics community on Twitter on their one-two victory, too.

    The background of her phone reads, "Blow your own mind." Biles told reporters, "I think that's what I did."

    Just to put her brilliance into perspective: even after making two costly mistakes during the world championships, Biles still came out ahead of Douglas by 1.083 points β€” which is a lot in the context of gymnastics scoring.

    Analysts noted that Biles' routines often rank so high in the difficulty category, she regularly tops her competitors even if she doesn't execute the moves perfectly.

    See you at the 2016 Summer Olympics, queen!
