Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles has won her fifth title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships becoming the first woman to win all five titles. 

 

Biles wore a teal-colored leotard Sunday night which is the color for sexual abuse survivors, and Biles said she wanted to acknowledge the hundreds of women who were abused by Larry Nassar. Biles says she was abused by the longtime USA Gymnastics and Michigan State physician along with her Final Five teammates Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and Madison Kocian. 

 

 “I picked it out in January,” Biles said. “But it is for the survivors, and I stand with all of them.”
