Simone Biles leads the U.S. back where it all began, looking to become the most decorated gymnast in history.
The world’s best gymnasts are currently competing in Antwerp, Belgium for the 2023 world championships. Not only is the most decorated U.S. women’s team in world championships history eyeing its seventh straight title, but superstar gymnast Simone Biles is returning to where her record-breaking gymnastics reign began — this time seeking a sixth global all-around title.
Through Sunday, October 8, the annual event sees top athletes facing off in both team and individual apparatus and all-around competitions. Antwerp will be hosting the event for the third time after the first-ever World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in 1903. Back at the 2013 World Championships in Belgium's capital, 16-year-old prodigy Simone Biles clinched two gold medals in the all-around and floor exercise events.
Now, with records of 25 world championships medals and 19 golds, Biles is set to become the first U.S. gymnast to compete at six worlds and at the age of 26, she will be the oldest U.S. woman to compete at worlds in more than 50 years. The 2023 World Championships will serve as qualifiers for all the events at the 2024 Paris Olympics, a path Biles has set for herself.
