Gymnast Biles leads U.S. to record 7th straight team title at world championships

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Simone Biles led the USA Gymnastics team to a gold medal at the 2023 World Championships last night.

(CHEERING)

FADEL: That's a record seven consecutive world championship victories for the U.S. team. For Biles, this makes 26 world championship medals to go with her seven Olympic medals, another all-time record. And that's even with Biles taking a couple of years off to focus on her health.
