World champ Simon Biles leads at U.S. gymnastics nationals

  Simon Biles and her coach Aimee Boorman don't talk about the pressure that comes with being a world champion. They both know it's there, even if it's hard to tell while Biles is competing. "She just goes out and does her thing," Boorman said. And at the moment, no women's gymnast on the planet does her thing better than the springy 17-year-old who is still scratching at the surface...
