Simone Biles Speaks out after Winning Her 5th All-Around World Championships Title

Simone Biles is letting the world know how she feels after winning her fifth All-around World Championships title on Thursday. The gymnast put her feelings into words in a social media post.

Fans and celebrities in the comment section went on another applause spree for Biles. "Just give her a crown," raved Biles' fellow athlete beau Stacey Ervin Jr.

"You’re incredible babe," fellow gymnast Maggie Nichols echoed before referring to Biles as a "legend."

An excited fan also added: "Such an amazing job!!! Congratulations on all your hard work. My little girl (level 3) says you are her hero!! God bless and enjoy."

Biles' World All-Around win on Thursday also counted as her 16th gold medal, and according to ESPN, she scored 58.999 points.

The sports website added that Biles' win put her 2.1 points ahead of the second-place finisher, China’s Tang Xijing and marked her career's biggest victory margin. No other female gymnast has also reportedly won more than three all-around titles.

Seemingly overwhelmed by her latest achievement, Biles said, per the New York Times:

"I don’t know; I feel like it’s not me. 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 feel like right now, actually I'm pretty confident in my gymnastics and myself and the performances I put out there," she added, according to CBS News.

Only days before landing her fifth world all-around title, Biles landed two history-making moves at the world championships – the triple-double during her floor routine and the double-double dismount on the balance beam.

Per PEOPLE, the triple-double move has since been named the Biles II in honor of the superstar gymnast. The Biles II reportedly brings the growing list of moves named in Biles’ honor to three.

Go, Biles!
