Simone Biles Pulls Off Never-Before-Seen Move That Leaves Everyone Speechless

She has already cemented herself as the gymnastics GOAT, but Simone Biles continues to proves just how legendary she really is.

Just months out from the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Biles has produced a never-before-seen move that has well and truly left everyone speechless.

The 24-year-old was competing at the US Classic in Indianapolis and absolutely blitzed the rest of the competition, finishing with an overall score of 58.400.

But there was one moment in particular that stood out from the rest.

During one of her vaults, Biles decided to attempt what's commonly known as the Yurchenko double pike - a move that has only ever been landed by male athletes in the past.

Well, until now.

The reigning world and Olympics champion was met with a round of applause from those in attendance before eventually earning an impressive score of 16.100 from the judges.

Incredibly, that score is actually higher than either of her gold medal-winning vaults at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

For any of her competitors watching from home, that's not good news.

But for Biles and USA Gymnastics, it puts them in good stead to clinch yet more gold medals at the upcoming Games in Tokyo.

"I was just thinking, do it like training," Biles said after the event.

"Don't try to overdo anything, because I have a tendency as soon as I raise my hand to kind of overpower things. I did a little bit, but at least I still was on my feet and it's a new vault."

Oh, and if becoming the first woman in history to ever produce a Yurchenko double pike during competition wasn't special enough, Biles also received glowing praise from one of the biggest sports stars on the planet in LeBron James.

The four-time NBA champion simply tweeted: "MY GOODNESS SIMONE BILES!!"
