TOKYO — Will a fifth skill soon be named after gymnast Simone Biles?
In May, Biles became the first woman to land the move – historically performed only by men – in competition at the U.S. Classic in Indianapolis. If she lands it while competing in Tokyo, it will bear her name in the gymnastics code of points, the Team USA website reported.
So far, Biles has four skills named for her – two on the floor, one on the vault and one on the balance beam, according to USA Today.
