This is getting to be BIG fun … watching our sisters and brothers and Simone Biles in particular, rack up the medals in Rio at the 2016 Olympics.

And speaking of Miss Biles, she added a third gold medal to her haul, easily winning the women’s vault final Sunday afternoon.

The 19-year-old averaged 15.966 during her two vaults, well clear of silver medalist Maria Paseka of Russia and bronze medalist Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland.

Biles is the first American woman to win Olympic gold on vault. Her three gold medals in Rio also are the most by an American female gymnast in one Olympics.

But she’s still not through. She will have a chance at more gold later this week when she competes in the event finals on balance beam and floor exercise.
