(CNN) - The best gymnast of our time, and probably in history, Simone Biles, has two other movements that will bear her name.

The American gymnastics star participated in the world championship on Saturday in Stuttgart, Germany, where during her exercise routine on the floor she landed after a triple-double and then, on the balance beam, did a double double disassembly.

His bar disassembly routine was a surprising double turn back with two other turns.

The triple double on the floor and the double double on the beam will not be officially named as her until the governing body of the sport, the International Gymnastics Federation, gives its approval.

AND ANOTHER ONE! The greatness never ends.

Biles already has two movements that bear his name, one in the floor exercise and another in the vault.

Biles was competing in qualifications for team competition and individual individual finals on Saturday.

It was the best on the floor and beam, the second in the vault and the seventh in uneven bars.

Biles, 22, seeks to extend his record as a female general champion in the world championships to five events.

during day ten of the 2018 FIG Artistic Gymnastics Championships at Aspire Dome on November 3, 2018 in Doha, Qatar.

She is trying to become the most decorated gymnast in the history of world championships. Vitaly Scherbo, who competed for Belarus, the Soviet Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States, received 23 medals in his career.

His next medal in the world championship will give him one more than Svetlana Khorkina of Russia, who had 20 in his career, and most of the podiums among women in the event.

For a movement to be named after a gymnast, the competitor must make the element successfully in the world championships or in the Olympic Games.

Biles had already completed the skills at the United States championships in August.
