Biles by miles: Gymnast Simone Biles claims record 5th world title

She defies gravity with remarkable grace and astounding guts.

And on Thursday, American gymnast Simone Biles reached a new pinnacle, becoming the first woman to win a fifth all-around title at the gymnastics world championships in Stuttgart, Germany.

And she won it by miles - beating China's Tang Xijing by what in gymnastics terms is a huge margin of over 2 points.

Biles' total number of medals at the world championship now matches her age - 22 - and puts her just one shy of Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo's record haul of 23 medals.

It also lends further credence to a joke her U.S. teammates made in the run-up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio, who said there should be a 'Simone Division' - an acknowledgment of her superiority in the sport.

Little wonder she's the clear favorite to win gold at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
