Three Young Women Make Sports History
Three incredible young women have made sports history. Simone Biles, Coco Gauff including Brigid Kosgei are the three names that you will have to remember. Simone Biles recently competed at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships where she became the most decorated gymnast of all time. Biles is already considered one of the best gymnasts in the world. However, it was her record-breaking 24th medal that placed her solidly in the GOAT status league.
Biles exceeded the record that was held by Vitaly Scherbo, who was decorated with 23 medals in her career. Biles did not just stop at earning 24 medals; she went on to win herself another gold medal during the floor exercise. This is why she has become the most decorated gymnast in the world -male or female.
Biles is not the only athlete that has broken records in sports. Coco Gauff is another sports star that has shattered records. She has become the youngest professional tennis champion in 15 years. On Sunday she won her first title. When the WTA tournament started, she did not have the best start, but in the end, she worked to come out on top.
Record-Breaking Sports History
Although she did not make it to the qualifying stages, Gauff, got another chance when one player pulled out due to an injury. Gauff worked and made it to the final defeating Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2. Since 2004 Nicole Vaidisova held the title of being the youngest WTA winner.
Another young woman who also has broken records is Brigid Kosgei as she ran her way to the finish line. The Kenyan runner competed in the Chicago Marathon recently. Brigid not only broke the women’s world marathon record, but she also won the Chicago Marathon for the second consecutive time. Her record stands at 26.2 miles at two hours, 14 minutes and 4 seconds.
She surpassed the previous record by 81 seconds. This record was held for 16 years straight by Paula Radcliffe from Britain.
Paula Radcliffe and Brigid Kosgei were seen posing for a picture at the finish line. The three young women have been celebrated by various media outlets in the United States.
