Biles now holds the record for the most combined world championship and Olympic medals, USA Gymnastics said in a tweet. The win brings her total to 37 medals. 

On Wednesday, Biles led the U.S. women’s team to a seventh consecutive team title at the gymnastics world championship in Antwerp. Since 2011, U.S. women have won gold in the team event at every world championship. 

Clinching that gold medal made Biles the most decorated female gymnast in history – topping Larisa Latynina of the former Soviet Union. Her win on Friday catapulted her ahead of retired gymnast Vitaly Scherbo.

Biles returned to competition in August after taking nearly a two-year break from the sport following the Toyko Olympics. During her time away, she married Green Bay Packers safety Jonathan Owens and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, becoming the youngest recipient of the honor.
