Biles first woman to make a "triple double"
Simone Biles is not content with being the best. Her latest achievement: a so-called "triple double" in the American Championships. "You should never be satisfied just because you win," she says, according to the New York Times.
Simone Biles, 22, was one of hundreds of American gymnasts who was subjected to doctor Larry Nassar's abuse.
In a recent study, it was revealed that the American Confederation deliberately concealed the doctor's abuse for over a year.
In those days, Biles expressed his disappointment that the union was unable to protect the gymnasts.
Despite that, she now accounted for a historic achievement in the American Championships. She became the first woman to succeed with a so-called "triple double" in the competition context.Not counted as
But as long as Biles does not test the momentum at a World Cup or Olympics, she will not be able to get points because a "triple double" is not officially counted as an approved moment until then.
For the entire routine, she received 14.35 points, the highest of all during Friday. Biles promised to try to repeat the business tomorrow Sunday.
"You should never be satisfied just because you win, but always give your utmost to take the next step," she says according to the New York Times.
A "triple double" is rare even on the men's side and the fact is that many of Bile's competitors cannot carry out a "double double" - which she also stood for in the same competition and became historical when she was the first woman to manage it from a boom .
Biles is the most decorated gymnast in the world championships with his 20 medals, including 14 golds, and has also taken four Olympic golds.
