USA's star gymnast Simone Biles adds more eponymous moves to her collection

The USA's Simone Biles has landed two new moves which will be named after her during the Gymnastic World Championships in Germany. 

The 14-time world champion became the first women to complete a triple double on the floor which will be named the 'Biles II.' She premiered the original 'Biles' floor move at last year's championships.

The 22 year-old also performed a double-double dismount on the beam and totalled 59.432 points. The move is also to be called the 'Biles.' The fourth 'Biles' is a vault move.

The four-time Olympic champion said: "My goal going into tonight was to not be great. It wasn't to do with great, it was to do well and I feel like I accomplished that."

Biles has qualified for all finals and if she wins all four medals she will become the most decorated gymnast at any world championships. 

Controversy surrounded the beam move after Biles slammed gymnastic officials after they watered down the degree of difficulty, claiming it is too risky for other gymnasts to attempt. 

She said: "They [gymnastic officials] keep asking us to do more difficulty and to give more artistry, give more harder skills. So we do, and then they don't credit it, and I don't think that's fair."

Ahead of the championships Biles had said she doesn't see herself as a "superstar" as she would feel "more pressure". 

The finals take place throughout the week with the women's team finals tomorrow and the individual all-around on Thursday.
