By BBN Staff:  Star athlete, Simone Biles, has been named the 2019 Associated Press (AP) Female Athlete of the Year. The United States gymnast with Belizean heritage has been referred to as the ‘greatest gymnast’ of all time.

Earlier this year, Biles stunned the audience again with another set of routines at the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany.

Biles successfully landed two historic gymnastics moves: the double-double dismount on the balance beam, which consists of two back flips and two aerial twists before landing, and the triple-double on the floor which consists getting a running start then making two back flips and three mid-air twists before landing.

Commentators for ABC News in the US said that both moves will officially be named after Biles, who was the first to ever successfully perform them.

Biles walked away with her sixth national title after the competition, making her the first woman in nearly 70 years to win that many accolades.

Biles became the most decorated gymnast ever at the world championships, with 25 total medals.

Her jaw-dropping routines continue to redefine what can be done on the competition floor.

Biles’ Thanksgiving weekend in Belize with her boyfriend went viral after she shared photos of her “unBelizeable” weekend and even created a splash in Caye Caulker.

During her visit, Biles was also honored with a symbolic key to San Pedro Ambergris Caye.

In 2016, Biles also won the award following a showstopping performance at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, where she won five medals in all, four of them gold.

Biles is scheduled to participate in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
