Rio Olympics: Gymnastics | Simone Biles wins women's all-around gold

Gymnastics champion, Simone Biles claimed her second gold medal of the Rio Games when she won the women’s gymnastics all-around title on Thursday, August 11.

The 19-year-old who is from Texas, US, became the first woman in 20 years to win back-to-back world and Olympic all-around titles with a total of 62.198.

Gymnastics fans said Biles’ all-around win is merely a confirmation that she is the best in the world, and probably the best of all time.

Compatriot Aly Raisman claimed silver, while Russia’s Aliya Mustafina settled for bronze.
