Simone Biles extended her record in the all-around competition at the U.S. Championships.

On Sunday (June 2), Biles won her ninth U.S. all-around championship, marking her 32nd national title, per NPR.

Biles garnered a total score of 119.75 points during the two days of all-around competition on Friday (May 31) and Sunday.

“Today, it’s just getting out here, getting comfortable and confident in my gymnastics, and hopefully going to Olympic trials and making that next step towards Paris,” Biles said in a statement on Sunday. “So I couldn’t be more proud of how I’m doing this time in the year, and just gaining that confidence over and over, getting myself back in front of a crowd, and just doing what I do in practice.”

Biles also took home the gold in vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.

“I feel like most of the time, if I’m not stressing or have anxiety, I do feel like I’m having fun. So it’s good to have that and feel that again," the star gymnast said.

Following her all-around win, Biles will automatically advance to the U.S. Olympic Team trials, which are set to be held June 27-30 in Minneapolis. She will also be joined by Skye Blakely, who placed silver in all-around, and fourteen other other gymnasts invited to the trials.
