Simone Biles is always finding new ways to top herself!
The five-time Olympic medalist, 24, participated in the U.S. Classic on Saturday, marking the first time the gymnast has competed in over a year. During her last outing at the 2019 World Championships, Biles won her fifth all-around title.
Ahead of the competition this weekend, gymnastics fans were eager to see if Biles would attempt the Yurchenko double pike, a challenging vault the athlete has been working on since last year.
During a training session on Friday, Biles was seen practicing the move, which has never been done by a female gymnast in competition, according to The Washington Post.
And on Saturday, Biles, who had a goat (a reference to greatest of all time) rhinestoned on her leotard, landed the difficult move, earning a total score of 16.1. With the impressive feat, she officially became the first woman to complete the Yurchenko double pike in a competition.
