INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WJZ) — Simone Biles got a lot of attention over the weekend after the 24-year-old successfully landed an Yurchenko double pike — a dangerous and difficult vault move that no female gymnast has ever landed in competition — at the GKUS Classic.

But Maryland’s own Kayla DiCello also made it onto the podium this week, finishing third in the all-around.
