13 of the most gravity-defying pictures of Simone Biles from the Rio Olympics

Simone Biles received a near-perfect score for her floor routine on Tuesday to win gold in the floor final. This will be her fourth gold medal in Rio, and her fifth medal overall.

It was just another of a series of stunning performances from Biles that make it appear as though she defies gravity itself.

“I’m not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps. I’m the first Simone Biles,” the gymnast said. Indeed.

Take a look back at some of her most spectacular moments at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

From day one of the Rio Olympics, Simone Biles was setting herself apart from the competition.

I don't even think Biles needs this bar -- it's just getting in the way of her flying through space.

On day six of the Olympics, Biles just decided to float in mid air.

Then she flew to the balance beam to stretch her back.

A regular human would have fallen from this position, but not Biles.

And on Day 10, she did a full split while looking the beam dead in the face.
