The remarkable Simone Biles has made history again after producing two more unprecedented moves that will likely be named after her.

During the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany at the weekend, the gymnastics icon landed a triple-double as well as a double-double dismount on the balance beam.

The 22-year-old had this to say after another extraordinary day:

My goal going into tonight was to not be great. It wasn't to do great, it was to do well, and I feel like I accomplished that.

The moves will need to be approved by the sport's governing body, the Federation of International Gymnastics. Either way, they’re extraordinary.

For reference here is the triple-double which she landed during a floor routine.

And here is the double-double which she landed off the balance beam.

We don't know how she does it but she continues to astonish us.
