Simone Biles Wins Gold Medal In Floor Exercise Final: Watch Rio Olympics 2016 Video
Simone Biles won the individual floor exercise final for her fourth gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics on Tuesday. The 19-year-old superstar gymnast bounced back from a flub on the balance beam the day before that cost her the gold but still earned Biles a bronze medal. Watch the video below of Biles winning the floor exercise.
Not only did Biles nab a medal in the floor exercise, but so too did her teammate Aly Raisman. Raisman, who won the gold in the 2012 London Olympics, did a near flawless routine as well and earned the silver in Rio (video below). In all, she won two silvers and a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics.
As Gossip Cop reported, Biles won the bronze medal in the balance beam at the Rio Olympics after a bad landing during her routine caused her to have points deducted by the judges. As a result, Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands and Laurie Hernandez of Team USA ended up winning the gold and silver, respectively. It marked Biles’ first non-gold at the games.
Biles had been on a winning streak prior to the balance beam final. One week ago on Tuesday, the superstar athlete won her first Olympic gold medal in the team all-around final. Biles then earned her second gold for the individual all-around final at the Rio Olympics, defeating many other talented gymnasts. Not long after that, Biles scored her third gold Olympics medal in Rio for the vault final.
In total, Biles won four gold medals and one bronze at her very first Olympics. Check out the videos below of Simone Biles winning the gold and Aly Raisman securing a silver in the individual floor exercise final at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
