Gymnastics powerhouse Simone Biles has been named the 2019 Team USA Female Olympic Athlete of the Year after another record-setting performance in competition this year.
Biles topped a list of award-winners of the honors presented by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee this week in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Biles won five gold medals at the 2019 FIG World Championships, which is the most of any gymnast at a single worlds since 1958. She also set the all-time record of most medals in world championship competition with 25, which is two more than any gymnast in history.

During the competition in Germany, she completed two skills never performed by a female gymnast in competition: a double-double dismount on beam and a triple-double on floor, which will be named in her honor.
Biles, of course, reached international superstar status in 2016 when she won four gold medals and a bronze at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro,
Figure skater Nathen Chen was named the Male Olympic Athlete of the Year.
