Olympic champion Simone Biles is back and she is breaking records again.
Less than a month after returning to competition following a two-year break, the American gymnast Sunday became the first woman to win five US Women’s Gymnastics Championships all-around titles.
The 21-year-old achieved the feat wearing a teal leotard, the designated color for survivors of sexual abuse, to highlight the scandal that has rocked the sport.
“It is for the survivors,” Biles told ESPN. “I stand with all of them, and I think it’s kind of special to unite.”
The American, who won four golds at Rio 2016, also became the first woman since Dominique Dawes in 1994 to post the top score on every event, winning in Boston with a total of 119.850 points.
