Biles's victory in the individual vault gave her 13 career gold medals, surpassing the record of Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo.
Although suffering from kidney stone problems that briefly sent her to a hospital emergency room before the championships, Biles also claimed a silver medal in the uneven bars, won by Belgium's Nina Derwael.
