Simone Biles & Gabrielle Douglas Make Gymnastics History
If you are in need of an accurate definition of #BlackGirlMagic, look no further than the gravity-defying and spellbinding performances of Simone Biles, 18, and Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas, 19! The two teen gymnasts represented the U.S. with history-making wins at the World Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
Biles, who hasn’t lost a meet in 2 1/2 years, broke the record for women’s World Gymnastics Championships gold medals and became the first woman to win three consecutive titles at the world championships.
“I just keep blowing my own mind,” Biles said in interview. “There are goals that I have and then I dream of it and then I make it a reality.
“If I could crawl out of my skin and see it, it would be really amazing.”
