Simone Biles won’t be the first female gymnast to win five gold medals at one Olympics.
The all-around champion took bronze on balance beam Monday. She nearly fell after one flip, and had to bend down and hold onto the beam with her hands.
Teammate Laurie Hernandez, 16, won the silver.
Biles can still join Ecaterina Szabo (1984), Vera Caslavska (1968) and Larisa Latynina (1956) as a four-time gold medalist with Tuesday’s floor final. She’s a three-time world champion on that event.
