Simone Biles boasts of the jump that no gymnast has done in Olympic competition

Simone Biles casually performed her Yurchenko double pike jump during a podium training session at the Tokyo Olympics.

WASHINGTON – Even while training, Simone Biles doesn’t disappoint.

A day before the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony, American gymnast Simone Biles demonstrated her new jump during a podium training session in Japan.

Biles, 24, nearly got stuck on landing after executing a Yurchenko double pike.

Yurchenko’s double pike is extremely difficult and involves a rounding to the diving board, a back somersault on the vault, and ends with a double pike back jump to the landing.

In May, the fan-favorite Olympian became the first woman to achieve the move during competition.

For the movement to have its name, it still needs to land in a major competition like the Olympics. However, Biles’ coach Laurent Landi told NBC Sports last week it would take some conviction to allow the four-time Olympic gold medalist to perform the “very, very dangerous skill.”

Biles already has four moves named after him: one on the vault, one on the balance beam, and two on the floor routine. She is the favorite to win gold again in women’s comprehensive gymnastics.

The five-time Olympic medalist is also making headlines before the Games by becoming the first female athlete with a Twitter hashtag.

On Wednesday, Twitter Sports unveiled the newest emoji hashtag, a goat in a leotard and a gold medal. Appears when “#Simone” or “#SimoneBiles” is tweeted.

For those of you who don’t know, GOAT stands for “The best of all time.”
