Simone Biles was the talk of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and she’s now gearing up for another goldmine next year.
The four-time Olympic gold medalist had the Internet geeked on Tuesday (May 28) after she posted two videos of jaw-dropping routines.
“Summer floor training 2019,” Biles captioned the first video, showing one of her signatures, a front layout somersault. The 22-year-old Columbus, Ohio native is the only woman ever to land the move in international competition.

The second video shows Biles effortlessly landing a triple twisting double tuck somersault, something a woman has never landed in a major meet.

If Biles is able to land the second routine successfully at a world cup or world championship, the skill would likely be named in her honor in gymnastics’ code of points. It would also become the third skill to bare her name.
This, folks, is Black Girl Magic front and center. And remember she’s only 22!
