On Saturday in Indianapolis at the US Classic, Biles made history by landing a Yurchenko double pike on the vault, the first time the move has ever successfully been attempted in competition. The highlights are nothing short of spectacular as the American gymnast gears up for another run at Olympic glory in Tokyo later this summer.

The technical ability on display here is just astounding, and to the naked eye it’s actually difficult to keep track of how many times she spins. The announcing crew here is hyping up the move before it’s even attempted, marveling at Biles’ ability. And that it’s just a given that she would land it, something that officially had never been done, really speaks to how consistently excellent the 24-year-old has been in her historic career.

Earlier in the competition, Biles wowed on the balance beam, too.

And here’s her floor routine for good measure.

We can not wait to see what Simone brings to the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
