Simone Biles‘ latest record-shattering feats will be featured on the Olympic Channel as part of 2019 World Gymnastics Championships Week starting Monday night.

Olympic Channel will air one finals session per night from last October’s worlds in Stuttgart, Germany through Saturday. A marathon of all six finals sessions airs Sunday at 10 a.m.

All coverage — more than 30 hours total — will also stream on NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app for subscribers.

At her likely last world championships, Biles earned five gold medals out of six events. That brought her career total to 25 world medals — breaking Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo‘s record from the 1990s.

Biles led a U.S. team to a seventh straight Olympic or world team title dating to 2011, the longest reign for one nation in women’s gymnastics since Soviet teams in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. She then won the all-around by the largest margin under a 14-year-old scoring system.

She capped the week with titles on balance beam, floor exercise and vault, becoming the first gymnast to earn five golds at a single worlds since 1958.

She wasn’t the only standout of the week. The U.S. added medals from Jade Carey (vault silver) and Sunisa Lee (floor silver, uneven bars bronze).

Nikita Nagornyy led Russia to its first men’s team title since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Nagornyy then won the all-around and vault.

Olympic Channel will air 2019 World Championships Weeks for diving and beach volleyball the following two weeks.
