Simone Biles Just Nailed a Gymnastics Move No Woman Has Ever Done Before

Simone Biles just did something no other woman has done before. On Thursday, Deadspin reported, the Olympic gymnast competed at the selection camp for the upcoming world championships, which will take place in Doha, Qatar. 

When it was her turn, Biles performed a vault that the site described as the Cheng vault (a "roundoff onto the board and half turn onto the table…with only one and a half twists off") with an extra half twist.

According to Deadspin, this variation on the Cheng vault has only ever been successfully performed in competition by male gymnasts, which means Biles just broke an incredible record.


Previously, Deadspin reported that the enhanced vault will be dubbed the "Biles" if she ends up performing it at the world championships. And it looks like she'll be performing the move again later this month, because on Friday ESPN reported that the four-time gold medalist was announced to be headlining the team, which will be competing on behalf of Team USA in Doha.
