Gymnast Becomes First Person In History To Perform Unbelievable Move

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles backflipped her way into history.

Biles became the first gymnast in history to attempt and successfully land a double-twisting, double somersault dismount from the balance beam at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Missouri.

You've got to see it to believe it.

Biles has reportedly been practising the move for over five years. She executed the epic double-flip during her final event at the championships. After toping the table, Biles is one step closer to securing her sixth national title.
