Simone Biles is taking a break from competition for a while.
The 19-year-old Olympic All-Around Champion told Sports Illustrated during a recent interview that she plans to rest up after competing, and winning most of, the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.
“I will be taking a year off, I think, just until everything settles down, because now we have photo shoots and other opportunities that will come our way,” Simone shared.
She added, “It will be really hard for us to be in and out of the gym and train very serious during this time period. So afterwards, then we’ll see.”
