Simona Biles Wins 4th All-Round World Gymnastics Championships
Gymnast Simone Biles made history in Doha on Thursday as she became the first woman to win four individual all-around gold medals at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.
Biles had not competed internationally since the 2016 Olympics, while she revealed in January she had been sexually abused by a former Team USA sports doctor.
In addition, the 21-year-old American was admitted to hospital with a kidney stone on the eve of the Worlds.
“This is definitely the scariest one from the ones from the past,” she said.
Biles had previously shared the record of three all-around world golds with Svetlana Khorkina of Russia.
“This year has definitely had its ups and downs, going to therapy and other things besides. Just being in the gym has been a little bit rough, but you try to focus on one thing at a time to get through it,” she said.
