Simone Biles did it again.

She earned her 19th straight all-around victory Saturday at the U.S. Classic to extend her win streak to six years.

The Olympic gold medalist scored 60 points at the meet, which marked her return to competition last year after taking nearly two years off following the 2016 Summer Olympics.

“I’m very satisfied,” she said on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, via NBA Sports. “I’m a little sad that I went out of bounds on floor [exercise], but overall I feel like there are improvements to be made.”

She won by a 2.1-point margin over Riley McCusker, which is her largest point of victory at the U.S. Classic. Grace McCallum was third at 57.700.

Biles will head to Kansas City next month, where she will compete at nationals. If she wins that, it would be her sixth U.S. all-around title, which would tie Clara Schroth Lomady‘s record from the 1940s and 1950s.

Despite the all-around win, Jade Carey won the vault event with a two-vault average score of 14.800 and Kara Eaker and McCusker outscored her on balance beam, while Morgan Hurd won on the uneven bars with a score of 14.700.

However, Biles dominated the floor routine with a 15.000 to help her get the all-around win.
