Simone Biles took five months off to rest her body and perfect new elements of her routines for the 2016 competition season which include the Rio Olympics. That time away from competing paid off spectacularly at the Pacific Rim Championships in Everett, Washington this weekend.
She debuted a new floor routine and a new second vault.
Biles won the all-around competition, posting the highest scores on floor exercise, balance beam, and vault. She placed third in her least favorite apparatus, balance beam.
Biles has been called the most dominant athlete of any gender in any sport. She hasn't lost a competition she's entered since August 2013, and she's a three-time defending world champion. She is in a fantastic place as we near the 2016 Rio Olympics. All she has to do is maintain this momentum.
