Earlier, Biles also became the first woman to attempt a triple-double – two flips and three twists in the air during the floor exercise.
US Tennis star Sloane Stephens reacted to the incredible move from Biles.

According to Team USA, the double-double dismount will be named after Simone Biles if she repeats the move at an international meet.
The 22-year old gymnast has won four Olympic gold medals, and is a 14-time world champion. She is also the first American women’s gymnast to secure a medal in every Artistic Gymnastics event in the world.
