Simone Biles messed around and got a triple-double. And just about everything else too on her way to a sixth U.S. women's gymnastics title.

The Olympic champion began her preparation for the 2020 Games by drilling her boundary pushing triple-twisting, double-flip (aka the ``triple-double'') at the end of her first tumbling run on floor exercise Sunday night.

Biles had a two-day all-around total of 118.500, nearly five points clear of Sunisa Lee in second and almost eight points ahead of Grace McCallum in third.

The 22-year-old took the top scores on floor, vault and balance beam and placed third on bars, bouncing back from a sloppy set Friday that left the greatest gymnast on the planet and admitted perfectionist seething.
