AP: Simone Biles in a League of Her Own

On Thursday, Simone Biles made a strong case for being one of the greatest gymnasts of all time in a dominating performance for the ages.

Biles captured her second gold medal of Rio Olympics, winning the women's all-around by a whopping 2.1 points in a sport that keeps score to the hundredth of a point.

Not only was the performance dominant, it was also visually stunning. Below, we collected 23 of the best photos from photographers for Getty, Reuters, and the Associated Press.
