The 24-year-old gymnast claimed her seventh-straight all-around title at the 2021 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Ft. Value, Texas on Sunday, June 6.
In doing so, she remained unbeaten at nationals since 2013 and have become the primary American lady to win the title seven occasions, breaking her tie with Clara Schroth Lombady, who competed within the late 1940s and early ’50s. Alfred Jochim (1925-30, 1933) is the one different American gymnast to accumulate seven titles.
Throughout the weekend-long occasion, Simone compiled a complete rating of 119.650 and in addition took the titles within the vault, steadiness beam and flooring, along with the all-around.
Suni Lee ended up in second place with 114.950, whereas Jordan Chiles, who’s Simone’s coaching companion, landed in third with 114.450.
All three athletes are seen as more and more prone to occupy three of the 4 slots on the U.S. crew that will probably be gunning for its third-consecutive Olympic crew gold medal on the 2020 Tokyo Video games, which was postponed as a result of coronavirus pandemic. Olympic Trials for the crew happen June 24 to 27.
