Gymnastics: Simone Biles claims latest US Championship title ahead of Paris Olympics

Simone Biles has won her ninth US Championship title ahead of the Paris Olympics in July.

The 27-year-old finished six points ahead of second placed 19-year-old Skye Blakely with a score of 119.750 as she looks to win her fifth gold medal in Paris.

Biles, who won her first US title in 2013, had the highest two-day score on all four events and only faltered slightly on the vault.

The US Olympic trials will take place on June 27 with the USA Gymnastics revealing the competitors shortly after the US Gymnastics Championships ended.

Included in the trials are Biles, Blakely and 2020 Olympic champion Suni Lee. Despite pulling out the event on Friday, Shilese Jones has been included in the team and plans to compete later in the month.
