6 months ago 93

American Simone Biles continued her impressive return after a two-year break by winning women's all-around gold at the World Gymnastics Championships in Belgium.

The 26-year-old helped the United States win a record seventh consecutive team title earlier this week.

She followed that up by taking gold on Friday with a score of 58.399 points, finishing ahead of defending champion Rebeca Andrade of Brazil (56.766).

It is Biles' 21st world title.

Her American team-mate Shilese Jones took bronze with a score of 56.332.

Biles has returned to international competition in Antwerp for the first time since taking a break from the sport in 2021 to work on her mental health.

This triumph was her six all-around world title to take her overall tally to 27 world medals. She could extend that over the weekend where she will aim to make the podium in four other events in the apparatus finals.

Biles' impressive return to competition comes with less than 10 months to go until the Olympics in Paris.
