The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

LEG­END: clin­i­cal ex­e­cu­tion to post the high­est scores on three out of four ap­pa­ra­tus.

By the time Biles ap­proached the floor ex­er­cises, she needed only a 9.533 to clinch gold.

She wrapped up the con­test in style with a tripletwis­t­ing dou­ble back flip — now known as Biles II — to fin­ish with 15.333.
