Simone Biles captivated the world at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championships with must-see performances this past weekend in Kansas City, Missouri. The 22-year-old earned a record-tying sixth all-around national title, which was highlighted by a double-double dismount on balance beam Friday and a triple-double on floor Sunday, neither of which had been performed before by a woman. 

Biles is only the second woman to win six U.S. all-around titles, with Clara Schroth-Lomady being the first to win her titles between 1945 and 1952.

Check out how the world reacted to Biles' breathtaking performances on Twitter.
