Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles is now the most-decorated female gymnast in history after winning her 21st medal at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

The 22-year-old won her 21st medal at the world gymnastics championships on Tuesday, October 8, as the United States retained their women’s team all-around title.

Biles’ latest win has seen her break a tie with the Russian gymnast Svetlana Khorkina for the most medals by a woman at the world championships. She’s now two short of Vitaly Scherbo’s all-time record among men or women of 23.

The US team reportedly scored 172.330 points to beat second-placed Russia by 5.801 points and win their seventh consecutive team crown at an Olympics or world championships.
