Simone Biles Sho-cked Her Fans On National Gymnastics Day By Doing A Triple Backflip – VIDEO

Simone Biles has long been pu-lling off tricks that her oppo-nents wouldn’t dare to try in competition, but her latest undertaking may be her most ambitious yet.

The 23-year-old phenom appears to be working on a triple back p!ke — or, in layman’s terms, a triple backflip with legs fully extended.

On Saturday, Biles posted a video to Twitter in honor of National Gymnastics Day in which she pu-lls off the st*nt with three complete rotations.

And though she landed in a foaming fit, many people in the comments section were quick to note that Biles appeared to have enough air to land on her feet.

No female gymnast has ever pu-lled off a triple back pi-ke in competition. In fact, the feat is so unprecedented that judges currently do not have a way to score it officially, as it isn’t yet included in the Federal International Gymnastics committee’s official Code of Points for women’s gymnastics.

On the men’s side, a triple back became known as “the Liukin” after Valeri Liukin — Nastia Liukin’s father and coach — became the first individual to perform one cleanly in a competition in 1987. Even so, Liukin was not able to execute the trick as a pike, instead opting to pu-ll his knees to his che-st for a tu-ck.

Should Biles factor the st*nt into her already untouchable floor routine, she’d once again go on record as having pu-lled off a feat never before seen in the women’s gymnastics world. But to the most decorated gymnast in the history of her sport, reaching new heights is me-rely par for the course; Biles already has four skills named in her honor thanks to her unmatched abilities on the floor, va-ult, and be-am.

With another 10 months to go before the upcoming Olympic games k!ck off in Tokyo, the four-time Olympic gold medalist has plenty of time to work her way up from the foam pit to the floor. But even if she doesn’t manage to make it work, it’s safe to say Biles — who won gold in the floor exercise by more than a full point at the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany, last year — will find a way to impress in her routine. After all, she is the most dom!nant athlete on the planet.
