France claimed the third spot on the podium with a score of 164.064, marking their first team medal at the World Championships since 1950.

With this team gold, she has amassed an impressive 26 medals at the World Championships, including a stunning 20 titles at global events. Her unrivaled prowess on the gymnastics floor continues to redefine the boundaries of excellence.

Her unparalleled success extends beyond the World Championships, with seven Olympic medals, comprising four gold, one silver, and two bronze. This brings her combined tally of World and Olympic medals to 33, a feat that ties her with the legendary Vitaly Scherbo, who represented the Soviet Union, the Unified Team, and Belarus.

Reflecting on the team's exceptional achievement, Biles emphasized their collective spirit and resilience. ""I think our grit and fight [makes this team special]. I mean, it wasn't our perfect meet today, we had a teammate go down, and we had some mistakes here and there, [but we] just keep going, keep pushing, keep relying on our training because it was not our best day and that was a little bit close watching those standings," she stated.
