    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 ✨.

    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!

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

    HOLY COW! @Simone_Biles you're a BEAST! 3 BACK 2 BACK WORLD TITLES & Gabs @gabrielledoug with SILVER! SO proud of you gals! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #Glasgow2015

    CONGRATULATIONS to three-peat World Champion @Simone_Biles & silver medalist @gabrielledoug :) You guys rocked it!!!!!! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ @USAGym

    Wowwww @Simone_Biles and @gabrielledoug β€οΈπŸ’™

    QUEENS. πŸ‘‘

    nothing compares to having USA on your back and @gabrielledoug by your side πŸ˜˜β€πŸ… love you

    And Biles appears to be just as amazed with herself as her followers are.

    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.

    See you at the 2016 Summer Olympics, queen!
