I understand it is now called Bilenastics.

If it were [a gymnast from] another country trying it,

C'mon, Simone, you're too good for the race card. Don't be like Serena.

Does Vox really think there's superior non-female gymnasts?

Wow it must be nice to be the greatest gymnast ever, she's sure to be the number 1 pick in the Gymnastics draft next year.

she's been the GOAT for a while. now she's just continuing to distance herself from the rest.

She is the most winning-est. That does not equate to greatest.

You're right.

This equals greatest:

While Nadia did get the first (and only?) perfect score in Olympic competition - Simone is better than her in every possible way. She can do all of the same dainty precision moves that Nadia could do, but can also do a whole spectrum of higher powered moves that little Nadia could never do.

That's perfect scores, plural, for Nadia. Simone is quite awesome. Best in these last generations for sure. Nadia didn't have sprung floors for her floor routine, which she nailed with a routine that was cutesy and beautiful, Simone's was powerful and beautiful. Simone's balance beam routine is incredible, but so was Nadia's. Both were the greatest...different generations. Cannot compare quarterbacks from different generations either; different rules, different fields, different training, etc.
