Simone Biles' historic performance at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships helped her to her sixth all-around title.

Biles, who still doesn't think she's at full strength, finished the competition Sunday achieving another feat no other gymnast has completed. She landed a triple twisting double somersault on floor exercise to give her a big edge over the rest of the field.

She had a two-day all-around total of 118.500 and beat second-place Sunisa Lee by 4.95 points.

Biles took the top scores on floor, vault and balance beam and placed third on bars.

The floor exercise came two days after Biles had already made history as the first person to ever attempt, and land, a double-double dismount from the beam.

“I’m almost back to where I was at [2018] Worlds,” Biles said on NBC after the competition finished Sunday. “Of course it’s going to take some time, but we’re starting the journey.”

Biles will now prepare for the world championships in October. She'll enter the competition heavily favored and will try to extend her record at worlds with a fifth all-around title.
