Simone Biles wins Core Hydration Classic on road to Paris 2024 Olympics

Biles’ overall score of 59.500 was nearly two full points better than all-around silver medalist Shilese Jones and more than four points clear of bronze medalist Jordan Chiles.

She also took the gold medal on floor exercise, as well as silver medals in the uneven bars and balance beam.

Next on the road to the Paris Olympics for the 27-year-old Biles will be the US Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, beginning on May 30 followed by the US Olympic Trials starting June 27 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Three Olympic all-around champions featured in the field for the first time ever Saturday, with Gabby Douglas and Sunisa Lee – who collected Olympic golds in 2012 and 2021 respectively – also competing alongside Biles at the event in Hartford, Connecticut.

Lee won the beam title with a score of 14.600 while Douglas withdrew from the competition after falling twice on the uneven bars.

The last time the three women competed against each other eight years ago at the national championships, Biles came out on top, Douglas finished fourth and Lee finished 10th in the juniors.
