Simone Biles is an incredible woman and athlete. Watching her perform will give you goosebumps – especially if you’re the kind of person who can’t even do a cartwheel.
But now she’s not just winning gold medals and setting records, she’s actually completing moves that no other woman in her sport has done before.
At a qualifying competition for the world championships which will take place in Doha, Qatar, Simone completed and added a twist to a vault that has only been successfully performed by men before reports Deadspin.
Don’t worry, we’ve got video evidence. Get ready to be amazed.
Simone put her own twist (literally, she added an extra half twist) on a vault originally called the Cheng which is named after Chinese gymnast Cheng Fei. This variation of the vault has only been successfully done by men before so this is an incredible record for Simone.
If you’re wondering juts how difficult this move is, well, it ranks second behind the Amanar vault, named after Romanian Olympic champion Simona Amanar, says Thought Co. it was made famous by by McKayla Maroney at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. You can watch a video of the vault below.
Simone could possibly have the new variation on the move named after her if she uses it when she competes in Doha in November. It would be the second time Simone earns a namesake gymnastics move; she famously coined her own double layout half on the floor.
We're beyond impressed.
As we attempt a semi cartwheel!
