"Another day, another record for Simone Biles. Her record-breaking run at the 2018 worlds championships in Doha started with the all-around final on Thursday where she picked up her fourth all-around gold, making her the first woman to do so. She also tied Vitaly Scherbo for most world championship gold medals won at 12. The following day, she won the women’s vault gold to break out of the tie and own the gold medal record outright. She also won her first world medal on bars, making her the first American to win a world championships medal on all four apparatuses."
"Biles is the most decorated female gymnast in word championship history." 11-18

Before that she was a rising star at the junior level, winning a 2006 junior national championship in all-around with a higher score than senior champion and fellow Olympic hopeful Nastia Liukin." 08-08
