Simone Biles Wins Gold All-Around Medal

Three-time defending world champion, Simone Biles has won the women’s individual all-around gymnastics competition in Rio!

19-year-old Biles from Spring trailed behind Russia’s Aliya Mustafina for two rotations before taking her place back at the top with a beam exercise and flawless floor routine.

Three-time gold medalist, Aly Raisman finished with a Silver medal leaving Aliya Mustafina with bronze.

In 2012, Raisman and Mustafina tied for bronze in the women’s individual all-around, but Mustafina beat Raisman in the tie breaker event. This time, Raisman takes home the silver!

Congratulations, Simone and Aly!!
