U.S. gymnast Simone Biles tied the record for most world championship medals by winning the vault Saturday in Stuttgart, Germany, and St. Paul gymnast Sunisa Lee added a bronze medal to her winnings.

Biles scored 15.399 on her two vaults, a Cheng and an Amanar, and won her 23rd world championship medal, equaling the mark set by Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo for any gymnast, male or female.

Biles had the chance to make it 24 in the uneven bars but finished fifth. She will go back at the record Sunday in the balance beam and floor events.

Belgian uneven bars specialist Nina Derwael retained her world title with a score of 15.233, ahead of Britain's Becky Downie at 15.000 and Lee at 14.8.

"I've been working for this for so long, and it's been one of my biggest dreams," Lee said. "To actually be on the podium with such amazing bar workers is crazy.''

Lee already had won a gold medal as part of Team USA's all-around team championship, and she will compete Sunday in the floor exercise.

Marathon running

Two-hour mark falls, but it's no record

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya became the first to run a marathon in less than two hours, but it won't count as a record because he was assisted by 36 pacesetters and laser technology.

In an event planned for months, Kipchoge finished the INEOS 1:59 Challenge in Vienna in 1 hour, 59 minutes, 40.2 seconds. The official world record is 2:02:57, run by Dennis Kimetto in Berlin in 2014.

Gauff will face 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the final. Ostapenko beat eighth-seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova 1-6, 7-6 (5), 7-5.
