Simone Biles just captured the gold medal in the Olympic Women’s Artistic Gymnastics All-Around competition. Biles followed her gold medal in the team competition on Thursday with another impressive, record-setting performance.

Gymnastic experts were calling, three-time world all-around champion, Biles the Greatest Female Gymnast of All-Time well before she won either medal. I guess this just puts an exclamation point on that title. She succeeds her teammate, Gabby Douglas, as yet another African-American all-around champion at the Olympics.

Aly Raisman took the silver medal avenging her 2012 performance when she tied for the Bronze, but was pushed off of the podium in a controversial tie-break. Team USA goes on to compete in the individual event finals where they are expected to add to their medal count.

Congrats Simone and Team USA!! Excellence silences!
