Is there anything she can’t do?!

Simone Biles is able to add another award to her collection.

Since taking home her 25th medal at the world gymnastics championships in Germany in October, the 22-year-old Olympic athlete became the most decorated gymnast in the world, breaking the all-time record of 23.

Now at the Team USA Awards, Biles has been named the Female Olympic Athlete of the Year—one of only eight awards given at a ceremony in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Many athletes were recognized including the U.S. Women’s World Cup soccer team, which won the Olympic Team of the Year, and figure skater Nathan Chen, who was named the Male Olympic Athlete of the Year.

The vote was decided by members of the Olympic and Paralympic community, whose votes accounted for 50%, while the other half was from online fan votes.

Before becoming the most decorated gymnast in both men and women’s world championships, Biles told The Washington Post that she thinks it’s “really impressive for someone to be able to do that; I guess that’s me.”
