What did Simone Biles say about Paris 2024?

Biles recently won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor. Following the ceremony, the gymnast attended an interview with Emmy Award-winning anchor and reporter, Keith Garvin.

The interview comprised of numerous topics, including the award ceremony, her visit to the White House, and her wedding plans. However, Garvin asked a question of paramount importance during the interview. It was a question that fans of the seven-time Olympic medalist have been asking since the Tokyo Olympics.

The reporter asked if she would compete at the Paris Olympic 2024. Although the Olympic Games are still a couple of years away, the question stood valid. It is because the trials for the Summer Games are starting soon.

Hearing the question, Biles replied, “Yeah, I still think there’s a lot of time to heal from everything that’s happened. So obviously still taking care of myself, still going to therapy.”

However, that is not all the gymnast said during the interview. Slightly hinting that she is still open to the idea, the two-time Olympian continued, “I would say never say never, so I haven’t completely decided, so we’ll see.”

Although the athlete is silent on the matter, there might be some exciting news for fans.
