Simone Biles is Returning to Gymnastics Full-Time Next Month

Gymnasts often take an extended hiatus after competing in the rigorous Olympic games, but Simone Biles is ready to get back on the beam.

The 20-year-old gold medalist is returning to gymnastics training full-time on November 1 and plans to compete in 2018.

“It’s going to be rough,” she told NBC Sports. “But the muscle memory is there because I’ve come and I’ve played in the gym. All of my skills are basically still there.”

Still, Simone will definitely be trying out some skills she hasn’t done in a while.

“There are a couple of skills, like on [balance] beam, that I haven’t done yet, like a dismount, because why would I just chuck that? There’s no way. And I haven’t vaulted since the Olympics.”

We have no doubt that she will be back and better than ever in no time. After all, as her performance on Dancing With the Stars proved, there is little this athlete cannot do.
