When Simone Biles withdrew from the Tokyo Olympics, many speculated it was her last Olympic run. However, she hasn’t officially announced her retirement from gymnastics yet. Nor has she completely ruled out the thought of appearing in the 2024 Paris Olympics. Though, with her wedding as a priority and how things turn out from there, it would be a tough decision for her.

By the time Paris Olympics would be around the corner, Biles would be 28, which is not necessarily a prime age for a gymnast. However, given her talents and skills, age is just a number. Though, she did talk about her motivation for the next Olympics. “My coaches Cecile and Laurent are from Paris, so I think that would be a good run to end with them there,” said Biles.

Furthermore, she doesn’t make any promises about her future in gymnastics. She adds“I’ll see where we go.” Perhaps like her wedding date, she wants to keep this a mystery as well.
