In The News: Biles of US wins gymnastics all-around at worlds

ANTWERP, Belgium – Sixteen-year-old Simone Biles 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 also qualified for all four apparatus finals this weekend.
