Simone Biles, the 18-year-old reigning world gymnastics champion, just made history when she claimed the all-around title at the world championships for the third time in a row.
“I just keep blowing my own mind,” Biles said in a press conference after the competition in Glasgow, Scotland. “If I could crawl out of my skin and see it, it would be amazing.”

Although Biles faltered in the early rounds, she was able to calm her nerves and pull it together to win, making her the first woman to win three straight all-around world titles.
Though she hasn’t been to an Olympic games (she was too young in 2012), many are calling Biles the greatest female gymnast of all time. Thursday, Biles broke U.S. records for World all-around titles and World Championships medals, winning her 11th.
According to NBC News, Biles can tie the record for combined women’s Olympic and World all-around titles, 4, if takes home the gold at next year’s Olympic games in Rio.
