2023 World Gymnastics Championships broadcast schedule
Simone Biles leads the U.S. at the world gymnastics championships in Antwerp, Belgium, with finals live on Peacock through Sunday.
Biles, who owns records of 26 world championships medals and 20 golds, has become the first U.S. gymnast to compete at six worlds and the oldest U.S. woman to compete at worlds in more than 50 years.
On Friday, she can become the second person to win six world all-around titles after Japanese man Kohei Uchimura and the oldest woman to win an Olympic or world all-around title since Soviet Larisa Latynina in 1962.
This is her first international meet since taking a two-year competition break following the Tokyo Olympics.
In her domestic return in August, she posted the world’s top three all-around scores in this Olympic cycle, according to the Gymternet. In Antwerp, she added the top all-around score in qualifying and in Wednesday’s team final, won by the U.S.
That makes her a clear favorite for the Friday’s all-around final, which will also include last year’s medalists — Brazilian Rebeca Andrade, American Shilese Jones and Brit Jessica Gadirova.
Worlds finish Saturday and Sunday with individual apparatus finals. Biles qualified for all four women’s events. If she wins three medals, she will reach 30 career world medals in what could be her last world championships.
There are no gymnasts from Russia for a second consecutive year due to a ban since the invasion of Ukraine.
The International Gymnastics Federation announced in July that gymnasts from Russia could return to international competition as individual neutral athletes starting Jan. 1.
