Hallie Mossett’s floor to Beyonce’s Formation/Partition/Single Ladies. The head stand choreo during Partition was excellent! And she’s one of the only people in NCAA who actually does a full turn on floor, haha.

2016: Year in Review ⇾ Simone Biles at the olympics

Simone Biles finished one of the greatest Olympic Games performances by a gymnast, with five gold medals. Her five medals tie the hardware haul of a USA woman at a single Olympic Games, and her four golds tie an Olympic record shared by three others.Having won a combined total of nineteen Olympic and World Championship medals, she is the most decorated American gymnast, taking over from Shannon Miller, who had held this record since 1996.

Larisa Latynina (b. 1934) is a former Soviet gymnast who holds the world record for most gold medals obtained by a gymnast, male or female, with nine. Her total record of 18 Olympic medals stood for 48 years, until 2012.

She was the most successful gymnast of the 1956 Summer Olympics, where she obtained four gold medals on her first time participating in the international event. At the 1958 Championships, she obtained five out of six titles despite being four months pregnant. She is one of only two female gymnasts (the other being Simone Biles in 2016) who has won team, all-around and an event final gold in the same Olympiad – she has done so twice, in 1956 and 1960.
