Simone Biles talks about her future in Gymnastics

The seven-time Olympic medalist has accomplished almost every possible thing present in the sport. Hence, she has nothing left to prove. But the Olympian has previously mentioned she wants to see what she is capable of. Although, people who are ‘experts’ in the field already call her aged out for professional competitions.

Recently, Biles talked about what the next chapter in life holds for her. “Right now, that’s trying to find joy outside of the gym, because I’ve been almost out of the gym for a year now,” she said. Biles also added she achieved her ‘wildest dreams’ at 19 when she won four gold medals at the Rio Olympics.

Biles was also asked if she would be involved with the sport in some capacity. In response, Biles said she didn’t know if she wanted to be a coach yet. Biles revealed she once coached for a little when all her coaches had gone to France. And although the girls listen to her and she can tell what they are feeling, Biles thinks there might be a bit more.

Simone also added, “I just think the world is my oyster. I don’t think I have to have it figured out just yet because I’m only 25.” Biles is still figuring out her future and is also getting ready for her marriage with Houston Texans player Jonathan Owens. The couple shared rings after dating for over a year.
