Fans and well-wishers in the comment section couldn’t help celebrating the phenomenal young lady once again.

“So proud of you omg,” wrote teenage dancer/actress Maddie Ziegler while a second fan gushed: “Black girl magic!!"

“Congrats! It was outstanding to watch!” added a third Instagram user most likely in reference to Biles’ nailing of two complicated stunts at the US Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri, over the weekend.

On Friday, August 9, Biles became the first gymnast ever to attempt and land a double-double dismount. The complicated move, according to PEOPLE, involves making two flips on the beam before seamlessly entering three twists onto the floor.

Biles, a four-time Olympic gold medalist, was the first woman to attempt the move in competition and execute it flawlessly.

The same weekend, Biles also became the first woman to attempt the complex triple-double in competition. For the move, Biles had to make two flips on the beam before landing on the floor in three twists.

Biles’ historic performance earned her a record-tying sixth U.S. all-around title, something that, per CNN, no woman has done since Clara Schroth Lomady in 1952. Biles also won titles for her exceptional performance in the vault, balance beam, and floor exercise.
