Simone Biles Gets Standing Ovation For Breathtaking Vault Named After Her

Simone Biles wowed the crowd at the U.S. Olympic trials Friday with her jaw-dropping execution of a vault that carries her name.

The highly decorated gymnast drew a standing ovation and earned a score of 15.975 in Minneapolis after landing a Yurchenko double pike.

The complex maneuver is the most difficult jump in contemporary women’s gymnastics. Last year, Biles became the first woman to perform the feat in an international competition, which led to it being officially dubbed the Biles II.

The athlete was also captured on video pulling off the move during warmups Friday.

Biles’ score of 15.975 was the highest for any event of the night. Her all-around score, 58.900, put her in a comfortable lead in the trials.
