Biles achieved her historic leap at age 26.

Simone Biles made history on her return to the World Gymnastics Championships, becoming the first woman to perform a Yurchenko double jump in that type of competition.

Her feat took place this Sunday in Antwerp, Belgium, and was renamed Biles II.

The historic jump helped the 26-year-old American to take first place in the overall standings.

This is Biles' first international competition, after a two-year sports break in which she decided to focus on her mental health.

Biles scored 15.266 by performing the Yurchenko double jump, which is ranked as the most difficult jump in the women's scoring code.
His total score was 58.865, in all aspects evaluated.

A brilliant sportswoman

The gymnast had achieved the Yurchenko double jump for the first time in a national competition in 2021 and repeated it two years later in a big way, on an international stage.

With 25 world medals, the most for any gymnast in history, and seven Olympic medals, Biles is the oldest American woman to compete in a world competition.

He now has five skills named after him: two in floor exercises, two in jumping and one in balance beam.

Biles' achievements, which come 10 years after her world debut, helped the United States top the women's rankings.

Biles had not competed internationally since withdrawing from five of her six finals at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

The gymnast explained that she had been suffering from 'twisties', a mental block in which gymnasts can lose the feeling of space in the air.
