USA gymnastics queen Simone Biles made history on her opening appearance at the 2019 world championships on Saturday by landing a triple double skill on the floor which will be named "Biles II". The 22-year-old, who is set to add to her record tally in Stuttgart of 14 gold medals at her fifth world championships, landed one of her two new skills - a triple-twisting double back on floor - during qualification for the team event.

"@Simone_Biles tumbles into history again with her gorgeous triple twisting double tuck on floor! What a moment!," proudly tweeted the official USA Gymnastics account. It means Biles now has three skills named after her and could leave Stuttgart with a fourth if she lands a double-twisting double tuck dismount off the beam.
