Simone Biles continues to shine while winning her record seventh national women’s all-around gymnastics title in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday (June 6), which ties her with the most titles by any American in the event. The decorated gymnast wowed as she earned a score of 119.650, putting her nearly five points ahead of second place-finisher Sunisa Lee.
Biles’ floor routine was set to a song from “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift,” which included a “never-been-done-before” move called “The Biles.”
Next, the 24-year-old will try to become the first woman to win back-to-back Olympic championships in more than 50 years at the Tokyo Games, in fewer than seven weeks away.
I feel like I did try to enjoy it because it could be one of my last championships that I’ll attend,” Biles said, according to CBS News. “But it’s also the road to Tokyo, and after this we have trials, so we just have to really embrace the moment.”
With her performance on Sunday, Biles surpassed Clara Schroth Lomady’s previous record of six all-around U.S. championships titles. She is now tied with Alfred Jochim for the most by any American.
Roommates, Simone Biles is currently on a jaw-dropping winning streak as she inches closer to competing at this year’s Olympics in Tokyo—and her boyfriend has been right there to cheer her on.
Following her historic U.S. Gymnastics Championship win, Simone Biles’ boyfriend Jonathan Owens posted a sweet message of love and support for his “lil champ.”
With every additional win, Simone Biles continues to defy gravity and the odds, as she is now considered the greatest gymnast in the entire history of the sport. Over the weekend, she became the first woman in history to win a recording-setting seven all-around gymnastics titles—and her boyfriend, Houston Texans player Jonathan Owens, couldn’t wait to express his love to her following her amazing accomplishment.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Jonathan wrote:
“What an amazing experience. First time getting to watch you compete in person and you didn’t disappoint. It’s so cool that I get to watch you do what you love , and be the best at that!! I’m so proud of you my lil champ.
Trials up next and you already know I’m there!! Love you baby.”
As we previously reported, Simone Biles has won every all-around competition she has entered dating back to 2013. She was previously tied with Clara Schroth Lomady, who won her titles between 1945 and 1952. Now she is tied with Alfred Jochim, for most wins by any American.
Simone spoke about her historic win, saying “It’s really emotional, especially going into my second time doing an Olympic run.
It’s really crazy.” You’ll recall that late last month, she also added another historical title to her legendary resume, while competing at the U.S. Classic. During the competition, she became the first woman to ever land the Yurchenko Double Pike Vault—widely considered the hardest vault in all of gymnastics.

Valerie Vinson – Congratulations you’re a inspiration to gymnast worldwide. Let your moderation and motivation guide you and may God and Jesus Christ receive the glory.
Richard Gronday – There is no challenge in gymnastics. They need to make it challenging for people to be interested. Grease up the balance beam in a random spot, like a 4 inch section, put a trap door somewhere in the area they do the floor exercises, you hit that you are done.
You fall off the greased beam you lose points. Make the horse move, it starts out stationary but the more you get into your routine the more it moves and you need to adjust on the fly. That’s just some of the ideas otherwise it’s just as exciting as watching grass grow.hit that you
Bev Lai – This girl, this girl, this girl!!! Amazing!!
