Is “Queen of the Olympics” a real title? If so, Simone Biles would definitely be in the running.
Having already nabbed three gold medals (and one bronze) at the Rio games, Biles on Tuesday scored a 15.966 in the floor exercise, clinching yet another gold medal victory for the 19-year-old Ohio native.
As The New York Times points out, this makes Biles the fourth American female gymnast to win five medals in one Olympics; she joins the ranks of Mary Lou Retton (1984), Shannon Miller (1992) and Nastia Liukin (2008).
And you know you’ve had a good day when meeting Zac Efron is merely one of the events you’ve checked off your bucket list:
