Simone Biles' drive for five Olympic gold medals is over.

The Olympic all-around champion wobbled during the middle of her routine during balance beam finals Monday. She landed awkwardly while completing a front somersault and grabbed the beam with both hands to avoid falling down.

The 19-year-old already has three golds in Rio was attempting to become the first female gymnast to win five gold medals in a single Olympics. Her score of 14.733 was eclipsed by Sanne Wever of the Netherlands minutes later. Biles' teammate Laurie Hernandez claimed silver and Biles took the bronze.

Biles will be in the mix for another gold on Tuesday in the floor exercise finals.
