(AP) -- Simone Biles won five of the six gold medals in the world championships concluded Sunday and the American broke the all-time record of 25 medals by any gymnast, male or female. "She's just above anything else that we have seen in the sport," five-time Olympic gold medalist Nadia Comaneci said. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said Biles' star status would make gymnastics a must-see event at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
