Simone Biles is out of this world.

The powerhouse gymnast just became the most-decorated gymnast in the history of the World Artistic Gymnastics Championship. She has won more medals at the competition than any other gymnast — male or female.

Biles snagged her 24th and 25th medals in the competition Sunday, breaking the long-standing record of 23, set by male gymnast Vitaly Scherbo in 1996. She got the two after competing on the beam and then later on the floor.

She already became the most-decorated female gymnast when she won her 21st World medal.

This year's World has been quite the achievement for Biles. She also successfully landed the incredible triple-double on a floor routine and then a double-double dismount on the beam. USA Gymnastics said it would name the two moves after her, giving her four signature moves, according to CBS News.
