Watch: Simone Biles’ triple-double is even better in extreme slow motion
The triple-double that Simone Biles nailed at the U.S. Gymnastics National Championships in Kansas City, Missouri on Sunday was incredible, but comprehending the complexity of the move in real time was difficult. Even watching it in slow motion still didn’t completely allow viewers to carefully dissect what she had done.
Thankfully Timothy Burke broke the film down into extreme slow motion that allows viewers to fully analyze and appreciate the triple-double. Here you can see the three twists and two flips executed by Biles during her floor routine:

That was unbelievable.
You know you’re doing something special when it has to be slowed down to that speed for the naked eye to be able to see all that went on.
Biles, who won four gold medals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, has now captured six all-around titles at the US Gymnastics Championships.
