(CNN) - Simone Biles is taking gymnastics to a new level.

It's not just about getting medals, although that only solidifies her status as the best gymnast of all time. It is also how he is doing it.

Biles, 22, not only wins in gymnastics meetings. She dominates them. Remember sports giants like Serena Williams, Tom Brady, Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt.

In the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany, Biles extended his unbeaten streak for a whole year, dating back to 2013. But what is even more amazing is that he did it for 2.1 points, making it his greatest margin of Victory in the world championship.

And there is more: even with the error of going out of bounds three times in the floor exercise, one of its strongest events, Biles' advantage still increased by almost a full point.

Then came the individual events.

On Saturday, Biles won the vault by more than half a point, averaging 15,399 for his two attempts. On Sunday, his score on the floor, 15,133, was one point ahead of second place, and his victory on the balance beam with a score of 15,066 was six tenths of a point better than the runner-up.

"I really don't know how I do it sometimes," Biles said, according to the USA Gymnastics website. “Sometimes I wonder how I do it. I feel it's not me. I wish I had an out-of-body experience to witness it, because sometimes I think I'm going crazy. ”

Biles is redefining gymnastics. She captivates crowds and teammates alike with her power, concentration and confidence. She has multiple movements that bear her name and that, like tongue twisters, are hard enough to say, much more realize. Two of the latter are a double fold of double twist on the floor and a double fold of double twist disassembled from the beam.

She won the most gold medals in a single Olympiad, with four in Rio in 2016. She has 19 world titles. She is the most decorated American gymnast of all time.

And now, she is the most decorated gymnast in the history of the world championships, earning her 24 and 25 medals to beat the Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo (23).

So it seems appropriate that Biles celebrated at the end of his floor routine earlier this week when he became the first woman to win five full titles in the world championship.

This was probably his last World Cup, Biles said earlier that he will retire after 2020, but it's not over yet.

He plans to compete in the Tokyo Olympics next year, where he will surely be, despite his height of 1.42 meters, the greatest athlete in any sport to watch.

Biles is better now than in 2016. And this comes after taking a year off the sport. It comes after she revealed that Larry Nassar had abused her. She comes after becoming the first woman in three decades to win medals in all six events at the 2018 world championship, while fighting a kidney stone.

"With the great champions, everything is in the ears, it's nothing physical," said coach Laurent Landi, according to the USA Gymnastics website.

"I know we talk about physical abilities," he continued, "but without this," while touching his head, "she wouldn't be able to do what she does."
