Biles has two more events Sunday -- the floor exercise and the balance beam -- and will likely pass Vitaly Scherbo, a Belarussian who competed in the 1990s, as the most decorated gymnast in world championship history. Biles apparently wasn't overwhelmed by Saturday's amazing feat. Someone asked her what it felt like to back up the claim she is the greatest gymnast ever with a record-tying medal.

Submission Grappling needs to be in the Olympics. It is THE martial arts in the world. Karate and Taekwondo have been irrelevant for decades. It's time for Submission grappling to be an Olympic sport.
