WOMEN's All Around Final: Simone Biles realized the golden Hat-Trick

USA's Simone BILES won her third consecutive all-around gold medal at the gymnastics world championships in Glasgow, Scotland on Oct. 29, 2015.
Biles scored a 60.388 to beat reigning Olympic champion Gabrielle DOUGLAS (55.760) to become the first female gymnast to win three straight.
The bronze medal went to the 2014 vice champion (Nanning), to Larisa IORDACHE from Romania scoring 59,107 points. On fourth came the best Chines SHANG, Chunsong (58,265), followed by the second placed in the qualification round from Switzerland, Giulia STEINGRUBER (57,333), after a mistake on balance beam and by the best Japanese gymnast Mai MURAKAMI (57,132) .

... a very strong WCh all-around competition!
Simone BILES (18) overcame a near fall on balance beam and a big step out of bounds on floor exercise to post a score of 60.399, more than a full point ahead of Douglas and bronze medalist Larisa Iordache of Romania. The margin is the biggest of Biles' three championships even with the mistakes. She became the first woman to win three straight titles and hasn't lost a meet of any kind in more than two years.
And another interest fact: Gabrielle Douglas is the first Olympic champion to reach the medal stand at worlds since Yelena Davydova (URS) in 1981.

Biles is in the midst of a run unprecedented in this era of women's gymnastics, when peaks are measured in months and not years. Yet she is still improving, still pushing the boundaries with the Olympics only nine months away. Her performances have become events during an unbeaten streak at more than two years and counting, one that doesn't appear in danger of ending anytime soon. She combines groundbreaking tumbling — there's even a move named after her on the floor exercise — with nearly flawless execution.
♦♦  ... Simone BILES today evening at the fllor in Glasgow:

This victory today , her 10th in a row dating back to the 2013 U.S. Championships, came a little harder than most. The 18-year-old was in the middle of her balance beam routine — the event she's the most inconsistent on — when things got weird. She over-rotated on a front flip and found herself pitching forward, squeezing the 4-inch wide slab with her hands just to hold on. She recovered and finished as if nothing happened but sullenly walked back to her seat to do a quick (and typically not always fun) post mortem.
♦♦  ... the happy voice of Simone BILES after winning triple Gold:


Her biggest competition came from Gabby DOUGLAS (19), who is slowly and steadily rounding into the form that made her a superstar three summers ago in London. The 19-year-old edged teammate and three-time Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman to qualify for the finals thanks to a rule that limits countries to two competitors in individual events. Douglas is painstakingly building toward Rio, seeking to become the first woman to repeat an all-around gold at the Olympics in nearly 50 years.

While Douglas' routines aren't quite on Biles' level in terms of difficulty, it's not her fault. At the moment Biles stands alone, as dominant in her sport as LeBron James, Serena Williams or Lionel Messi.

There's still plenty of time for Douglas and the rest of the field to put in the upgrades necessary to get close to Biles. Catching her might be tougher. Her routines are so dynamic, so explosive and so expressive she can win easily even on days when she's not as sharp as she'd like. Biles now has 11 world championship medals, eight of them gold, all records for an American gymnast.
* What the Silver medallis Gabby DOUGLAS felt and said fter winning silver medal:

Romania's Larisa IORDACHE overcame the disappointment of Romania's stunning 12th-place finish in team qualifying to add a bronze to go with the silver she won last year. She hugged her coaches at the end of her routine, relieved after restoring some sort of order to the gymnastics world.
♦♦ ... and specially with this top balance beam exercise Larisa IORDACHE jumped back under the top three of this Worlds Final:


A short time later Biles was slapping hands with her coach Aimee Boorman, still kind of ticked after her second tumbling pass on floor exercise carried her over the boundary, earning her a major deduction. Even with the miscue, her 15.266 was easily the best of a night when she showcased she's once again best in the world.

A little bit unlucky was the petit Chinese girl, SHANG Chunsong about her fourth place.
