Not a strong enough statement IMO what this girl has done has never been done before she has not been beaten in the all around at a major event in the last 4 years. The floor exercise just as unbeatable, she has a move named after her in the sport (something that only legends have happen for them) and its a move that is so dynamic only she can do it.

I agree. Her accomplishments in Gymnastics far exceeds Serena Williams in Tennis. If she continues to dominate through the 2020 Olympics, she should be considered the Wayne Gretzky of Gymnastics.

It's a great accomplishment, but come on. Serena has been at the top of her sport for like 15 years. There is no comparison. Biles may never win at this level again. Look at Gabby Douglass. Last time around, she was the darling. Now she's over sulking in the corner.

Serena is the Jordan of her sport. This girl has a long way to go to get there.

Serena lived in Venus's shadow until about 1999, and she only surpassed Steff Graf in grand slam wins this year. I agree that Simone has a few years to go to be considered the greatest female gymnast of all time. Barring injury, she will get there.

^^^ She's already there!! 4 gold medals in one Olympic Game is a record haul.

Unlike tennis, longevity is not that common in gymnasts.
