Winning her 22nd World Championship medal, Simone Biles earned women's all-around gold at the 2019 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships with a score of 58.999. Tang Xijing of China and Angelina Melnikova of Russia were the silver and bronze medalists, respectively.

Biles wins by record margin

With her score of 58.999, Biles won the women's all-around title by a record-setting margin of 2.001. She began the competition with an excellent Cheng on vault for a 15.233. Her second-highest event score of the day actually came from her next event as she hit a fantastic uneven bars set, complete with a stuck double-double dismount for a 14.733. Up next was beam, where she earned a 14.633. Heading into her final routine of the day, Biles needed just a 12.300 to secure the title. Her floor routine wasn't perfect and she went out-of-bounds, but her 14.400 was more than enough for the gold medal.

Tang Xijing ends Chinese all-around medal drought

A Chinese women's gymnast hadn't stood on a world championships all-around podium since 2011 when Yao Jinnan won bronze, but Xijing ended that today with her silver medal. Xijing's second-place finish tied 2010 world all-around silver medalist Jiang Yuyuan for the highest Chinese placement in the world all-around competition for China. 

Xijing earned a 56.899 in today's all-around competition, highlighted by a 14.533 on bars and a 14.600 on beam. She vaulted a nice Yurchenko double for a 14.166 and hit a good floor routine for a 13.600.

Melnikova wins first world all-around medal

The reigning European Games all-around champion has finally won a world all-around medal with her score of 56.399 earning the bronze. 

Competing in her third world championships, the Russian leader had a good, consistent meet, earning scores only in the high-13.000 to mid-14.000 range. Her highest score came on vault where her Yurchenko double earned a 14.433. Uneven bars wasn't her best but still a hit routine at a 13.900. Balance beam and floor were both solid with scores of 14.000 and 14.066, respectively.
