Simone Biles Becomes First Woman to Win 7th All-Around U.S. Gymnastics Title

Simone Biles won the U.S. gymnastics title at nationals on Sunday, setting the record as the first American woman to do so seven times.

The 24-year-old gymnast claimed her seventh-straight all-around title at the 2021 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Ft. Worth, Texas.

In doing so, she remained unbeaten at nationals since 2013 and became the first American woman to win the title seven times, breaking her tie with Clara Schroth Lombady, who competed in the late 1940s and early '50s. Alfred Jochim (1925-30, 1933) is the only other American gymnast to collect seven titles.
