After winning the all-around titles on American soil, Biles carried her dominance to the 2023 World Gymnastics Championship. The 26-year-old returned to the venue after a decade since her debut and donned a sparkling bright pink along with her teammate Jocelyn Roberson. Simone shared a goofy selfie just before the most anticipated sixth-all-around win on her Instagram. Remember when Biles shared her notorious love for Barbie? Well, the American franchise reportedly worth $33.9 billion commented, “Pretty in pink- good luck” with a pink heart.

Just before a historic all-around victory, Roberson beamed with contentment, and Simone posed with a winking, twisted tongue. This Friday, Biles set a new record by winning her all-around gold with a score of 58.399 at Antwerps’s Sportpaleis. However, a minute error on the floor routine gave a bit of a scare, covered by an otherwise flawless performance at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. The fact that the feat was achieved with 2022 gold and silver AA just margins away is a testament to her remarkable talent.
