Simone Biles, a gymnast so talented and legendary we ran out of ways to describe the full scope of her might during the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, has done it again.
On Sunday, Biles became the first woman in nearly 70 years to become a six-time U.S. all-around champion, having earned the national title in every championship since 2013 (except in 2017, when she took a post-Olympic year off). NBC points out that she “only won four of the five” gold medals this week, as opposed to her 2018 sweep. Truly a disappointment.
(TO BE CLEAR I AM JOKING SIMONE BILES IS FUCKING INCREDIBLE AND THE GREATEST GYMNAST OF ALL TIME.)

And on Saturday, Biles managed to land a double-double dismount—double twist, double somersault—off the high beam. She is the first person ever to accomplish this, a feat which is absolutely mind-boggling to think about:
