Simone Biles has announced her desire to compete in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Simon Bilesthe most decorated gymnast in U.S. history, announced on Thursday that she wants to compete in Paris 2024 Olympic Games after returning to service in August last year with two dominant figures after a two-year absence.

“At this point, I would say that this is the path I would like to take (performing in Paris in 2024),” Biles told American this Thursday morning on the network. NBK.

In a live speech on US TV, a journalist jokingly asked Biles if he should bet five dollars on his attendance or absence from Paris 2024.

I wouldn’t mind if you put them in yes.

Biles, 26, reappeared on the field with a win on August 5 at the US Classic in Chicago and made history on August 27 by winning his eighth national title in San Jose. Then, when asked about her intentions to participate in Paris 2024, Biles did not answer and asked for time.

On a sporting level, it was an impressive comeback for Biles, who has not competed since the Tokyo 2020 Games when he withdrew mid-competition due to mental issues.

She gave up individual, floor, support and asymmetric exercises after experiencing an episode of “turns”, a disconnection between mind and body.

He returned to the same Games to do the horizontal bar exercise, earning him a bronze medal.

I need to take care of myself a little more, listen to my body a little more than before.

Finally, the American credits her recovery with “great confidence” in her coach and teammates and “above all” in her own abilities.

Now I feel like I’m still a little self-doubting, but I’m still in therapy to make sure everything is going well.
