Simone Biles won big Sunday at this year's U.S. Gymnastics Championships, claiming the all-around title for the sixth time and accomplishing two historic feats in the process.
According to USA Today, the 22-year-old successfully landed a triple-twisting double somersault – a move that no other woman has performed during a competition.
