Simone Biles becomes most decorated gymnast in World Championships history

US gymnastics star Simone Biles won her fifth gold medal in the women’s floor final to conclude her best ever world championships and extend her all-time record to 25 medals at the competition in Stuttgart on Sunday.

Biles, who won the beam title earlier in the day, claimed an unrivalled 19th world gold following her previous successes in the team, all-around and vault events.

Biles was crowned world floor champion for the fifth time in her career after winning the final by a full point from team-mate Sunisa Lee, who earned silver with Russia’s Angelina Melnikova taking bronze.

This is the first time Biles has finished a world championships with five golds, but she has said she is “99 percent” sure Stuttgart will be her last.
