Biles surpassed the record held by Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo, who had a career total of 23 medals in world championships. But she didn't stop at 24. Biles went on to win a 25th medal -- another gold -- in the floor exercise.

15 year old Coco Gauff (born in Atlanta, Georgia) served her way to becoming the youngest tennis titlist in 15 years. Gauff didn't have the best start to her WTA tournament in Linz, Austria. But she came out on top in the end -- AND became the youngest to do it in 15 years.

Although she lost in the qualifying rounds, the 15-year-old tennis phenom got another chance after a player pulled out with an injury.

Gauff then made it to the final, where she defeated Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2. Nicole Vaidisova had been the youngest WTA winner since 2004, when she won her first title

25 year old Brigid Kosgei (born in Kenya) just ran really fast for 26.2 miles to smash a world record.

Brigid Kosgei crosses the finish line at the Chicago Marathon with a world record time.

Kosgei beat the women's marathon world record by more than a minute Sunday in winning the Chicago Marathon. Her unofficial time of 2 hours, 14 minutes and 4 seconds beat Paula Radcliffe's record, set at the 2003 London Marathon, by 81 seconds.
