Biles is pursuing a spot for the summer Tokyo Olympics. She said, “I feel like I did try to enjoy it because it could be one of my last championships that I’ll attend. But it’s also the road to Tokyo, and after this we have trials, so we just have to really embrace the moment.”  

According to CNN, Biles’ seventh title is the most won by any American woman. The 24-year-old recently made history as the first woman to land the Yurchenko double pike. The move had only ever been completed and landed by men.

A series about Biles and her gymnastics career titled “Simon vs. Herself” premieres on Facebook Watch June 15. The trials for the U.S. Olympic team will be held June 24-27 in St. Louis, and the Tokyo Olympics are set to begin in July.
