Is Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles really unbeatable? We break down the physics behind her signature move.

Less than halfway through her first Olympics, Simone Biles is already a legend USA gymnast. She is not merely better than any other in female gymnastics right now. She is quite possibly the best female gymnast ever—dominating on the beam, floor and vault. Watch Simone Biles on video and see she does more complicated tricks and has nearly flawless execution, and she already has a move named after her.

Samuel Rogers well if she was trans then she would still be a WOMAN competing in WOMEN’S sports

@Kenzie West You clearly wasn't taught right .... Women should compete with women in sports NOT Men as women competing in a womens sports like Serena & Venus Williams did. Look up Renee Richards in Tennis Olympics. This has been going on a longtime.... Transgenders in sports!!!

Samuel Rogers she’s not, but what would be the problem if she was?

Simone Biles is a male. They’re all males with pony tails at the elite level.

Don’t believe me? Go back to anatomy and physiology class. Men and women have different skeletons.

It's funny how obsolete this video already is. Simone does the triple double and the layout double double!

He didn't mention that the triple layout was on a tumble track which is a trampoline. No one has done a triple layout on the floor yet. I love this sport. I've been doing it since I was a little kid. I can't believe it's not on TV much unless it's the Olympics! Everyone would rather watch Simone tumble! So much more exciting than golf or football!

Can we get an updated version please?

Fantastically done video. But seriously, but does she think about tucking her arm in when she is in the air? Is she counting her rotations? How does she know it's time to land? I'm all boogled up just doing a simple cartwheel! And half the time I don't even land on my feet!
