Simone Biles she’s her greatness again, this time she went to Qatar to win world titles. The Olympic Gold medalist makes history by becoming the first woman to win all around world championships. She also extended her winning streak, which began at the U.S. championships in 2013 and includes the Rio Olympics, where she won four gold medals, including the all-around.

This wasn’t perfect situation for Simone Biles. Before the celebrations and making history moments today. She was in the hospital a day before the world championships due to kidney stones.

Simone started the competition on Thursday sluggish. She fell twice, on vault and balance beam, and put one foot out of bounds on her first tumbling pass on floor exercise. But her huge advantage in difficulty carried her to the title. She finished with 57.491 points, 1.693 points ahead of Japan’s Mai Murakami.

Even with the mistakes, it was Biles’ largest margin of victory at the world championships. Only her victory in Rio, by 2.1 points, was bigger.

Biles is so gifted athletically, that she could fall two or three times and still win. She proved that Thursday, where she was clearly not her best. Whether it was the kidney stone that kept her in the emergency room until 1 a.m. the night before qualifying, the expectations or simply a bad day.

At the end of the competition she was at where she is always at. On top of the podium with a gold medal around her neck. When she gets back home she will have to undergo surgery to get her kidney stone removed.
