With the Tokyo Olympic Games about a month away, Simone Biles is continuing to keep her eye on the reward.
“I’ve already done quite a lot,” she informed Glamour for its June cover story, “but I’m still trying to reach new heights and see what I’m capable of.”
With a combined overall of 30 Olympic and world medals, Biles is currently the most-decorated U.S. females’s gymnast ever. And she continues to raise the bar. At the U.S. Classic in May, the 24-year-old professional athlete made history by landing the Yurchenko double pike, a relocation no lady has actually carried out in a competitors prior to.
Indeed, it’s tough to picture a time when Biles will not be going for the gold at the Olympics. “I’m just really excited to see what’s out there in the world,” she stated, “and to see what else I’m good at.”
And while the preliminary strategy was to retire after 2 Olympics, the Paris Games set up for 2024 are currently calling. “My coaches Cecile and Laurent are from Paris, so I believe that would be a great go to end with them there,” she included. “I’ll see where we go.”
