New record: Simone Biles - her 10th Gold Medal

Simone BILES from USA set the record by a female for career gold medals at the world gymnastics championships Sunday by winning the balance beam and floor exercise. The 18-year-old now has 10 golds in all, breaking the mark held by Svetlana Khorkina (RUS) , Gina Gogean (ROU) and Larisa Latynina (URS.
The three-time all-around champion posted a score of 15.358 on balance beam, more than a point better than silver medalist Sanne WEVERS of the Netherlands and bronze medalist Pauline SCHAEFER of Germany. The margin was nearly as big on floor exercise, where her score of 15.800 beat Russia's Ksenia AFANASIEVA by seven tenths. American teammate Maggie NICHOLS earned a bronze behind her best friend.
The two golds during the event finals gave Biles 14 total medals since she made her debut at the championships in 2013. She has won four gold medals at each of the last two world championships, more than any other country during that span.
