Simone Biles Wins Fifth All-Around World Championship Medal

Simone Biles is a step closer to being the greatest gymnast ever to have competed in the World Gymnastics Championships.

Biles won her fifth world all-around title by dominating the field at the 2019 World Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. With the win, she now holds 22 world medals.

Biles, 22, scored 58.999 points, ESPN reported, putting her 2.1 points ahead of the second place finisher, China’s Tang Xijing — and marking the biggest margin of victory of her career.

“I don’t know; I feel like it’s not me,” Biles said after her win, per the Times. “Sometimes I wonder how I do it. I feel like it’s just, like, not me. I wish I could have like an out-of-body experience to witness it, because sometimes I think I’m going crazy.”

“I really don’t know how I do it sometimes,” she added.
