Houston Chronicle - over 4 years
Houston gymnast Simone Biles wins world championship By Raf Casert The Associated Press ANTWERP, Belgium (AP) — Sixteen-year-old Simone Biles of Spring made everyone forget the United States came to the world championships without the defending and Olympic champions, edging teammate Kyla Ross to win the all-around gold medal on Friday. Biles and Ross were close throughout the evening, with Ross matching Biles’ athleticism and power with grace and elegance, leaving it to the final floor exercise. Biles jumped, twisted and strutted, and it turned into a victory dance in front of the many thousands clapping to her music at the Sports Palace. Aliya Mustafina of Russia, the 2010 champion, took bronze. Biles also qualified for all four apparatus finals this weekend — the first female U.S. gymnast to do so since Shannon Miller in 1991.

The Hollywood Gossip - over 5 years
Aly Raisman has ceded much of the attention to teammate Gabby Douglas at the London Olympics, but undoubtedly emerged as a star in her own right. The 18-year-old from Massachusetts hoped to secure not one, but two individual medals in the final day of gymnastics. Was she able to achieve that? Find out below ... She did! Raisman nailed her floor exercise routine to win the gold medal, scoring a 15.6 and easily topping silver medalist Catalina Ponor of Romania (15.2). Russia's Aliya Mustafina took the bronze (14.9). Jordyn Wieber was seventh. "It was the best routine I've ever done," Raisman said afterward. "My coach [Mihai Brestyan] said it was the best routine he'd ever seen me do."
