That might be the only hope of stopping Biles, the toe-pointing, triple-twisting juggernaut out of Texas. Just 18 and standing all of 4 feet 9, she’s won the individual all-around title at the World Gymnastics Championships for three straight years.
No other female competitor has ever done that. Before her, no African-American had won the title once. Not even 2012 Olympic all-around champ Gabby Douglas (aka "the Flying Squirrel"), who actually finished second to Biles in 2015 by almost 1.1 points — a rout in gymnastics.
