    I almost put “girl” in there then first thought - she’s 22 now - all growed up. Then I remembered the dressing down a fellow employee got for using the term to a mature, black admin assistant.
    Never mind that at our age the ladies all refer to them selves and their girlfriends in that manner.

    Back to the point of the post: Simone Biles' road to GOAT (greatest of all time) status, sixth US all-around title

    Vid at link with the something like 8-10 feet of vertical clearance.

    Biles captured a record-tying sixth U.S. all-around title by a hefty 4.95 points this weekend. She has won 20 straight all-arounds dating to 2013, returning last year after a one-year break to dominate more than before.

    Paced by another landmark performance from four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, the United States women’s team won the International Gymnastics Federation world championship Tuesday, giving Biles a record 21st world championships medal.

    10/10 STUTTGART, Germany (AP) — Simone Biles won her fifth all-around title at the gymnastics world championships Thursday, underlining her status as the clear favorite for next year’s Olympic gold medal.

    The U.S. gymnast scored 58.999 points to finish 2.1 points ahead of China’s Tang Xijing. Angelina Melnikova of Russia was third on 56.399.

    Biles’ margin of victory was her biggest at a world all-around event, and matched her winning margin at the 2016 Olympics, before she took a year off.

    Simone Biles on Sunday became the most decorated gymnast — woman or man — at the world championships. Her 25 career medals at the event broke a record held for more than two decades by Vitaly Scherbo of Belarus.
