Congratulations are in order for Simone Biles who took home fives of the six gold medals at the World Championships this past Sunday in Stuttgart, Germany.
The additional medals make Biles the most decorated medalist in the world championships history beating out Vitaly Scherbo’s record 23 medals won through the ’90s.
The 22-year-old now has 25 world championship medals, which arguably makes her one of the greatest gymnasts in history.
So how does the gymnast feel after breaking the record? Biles is pretty excited that she’s raked in more medals than her age. She also announced in an exclusive interview with USA Today Sports that she’s speaking confidently about her wins to let others feel safe to do the same.
“I’ve won five world titles and …‘I’m the best gymnast there is”.
