With a dominant performance at the 2019 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, American gymnast Simone Biles has won an impressive 25 medals at worlds, 19 of which are gold, making her the most decorated gymnast of all time.
Simone first claimed the women's record in 2018, when she matched Russian gymnast Svetlana Khorkina with 20 world medals, but surpassed her with a record 14 golds. She quickly widened that margin at the 2019 championships with a win in the team event. After taking home medals in the all-around final and on vault, Simone set her sights on another piece of history: toppling the record held by Belarusian gymnast Vitaly Scherbo, who won 23 world medals during his career. She did just that on the final day of competition, when she topped the podium in the balance beam and the floor exercise, bringing her career total to 25.
Since her senior debut in 2013, Simone has won at least one medal in all five individual events at the world championships (balance beam, vault, uneven bars, floor exercise, and all-around), in addition to winning the team event.
