Olympics 2016 Simone Biles

Olympics 2016: What Was Your Favorite Moment From the Rio Games' Day 11?

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:

Here are some other buzzed-about moments from Day 11 of the Rio games:

* After dominating China, the U.S. women’s basketball team defeated Japan 110-64 in the quarterfinals.

* In the women’s beach volleyball semifinals, Keri Walsh Jennings and April Ross were defeated by Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas of Brazil.

* After knocking the U.S. women’s soccer team out of the competition, Sweden on Tuesday bested Brazil in penalty kicks and will advance to the gold medal game.

* Omar McLeod of Jamaica earned his first gold medal in the men’s 100-meter hurdles.

    Simone and Aly were both so beautiful during their routines
    April and Kerri played a great game no matter what happens tonight they should be proud of how well they played as a team!
    It was also great to see Danell Leyva coming back from falling last week to getting the silver on the horizontal bar yesterday and also silver on the parallel bars

    It’s such a pleasure to watch Simone Biles. And her competition was ridiculous! To win 4 golds against all of that talent is insane.

    My favorite moment is not one that you mentioned here, but I saw it highlighted in both the CBC and NBC broadcasts and it was during the women’s 5000 Meter run. A runner from New Zealand (Nikki Hamblin) fell down and an American runner (Abbey D’Agostino) tripped over Hamblin’s feet and fell down. Instead of ignoring her competitor, D’Agostino bent down to make sure than Hamblin was ok and encouraged her to get up and complete the race. With that being said, tripping on Hamblin caused D’Agostino to injure her knee, so while they both were trying to complete the race, D’Agostino’s injury was bad enough that her leg kept buckling under her. So Hamblin turned around with open arms and helped and encouraged each other to finish the race. When it was all over, they embraced each other and Hamblin kept calling for a medic to bring a wheelchair over for D’Agostino who could barely walk. When asked Hamblin said that she won’t remember where she finished in the race, she won’t remember her time, what she will remember is the incredible act of sportsmanship and kindness that a stranger gave to her in that initial moment of falling down. The encouragement is what she’ll remember most. Honestly it was one of the most lovely displays I’ve ever seen. Beautiful and heartwarming!
