Simone Biles is discussing when she might retire from gymnastics.

The 24-year-old gymnast discussed her career in a new interview with Glamour, telling the outlet that she may retire after the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

"I've already done quite a lot, but I'm still trying to reach new heights and see what I'm capable of," she said. "I'm just really excited to see what's out there in the world and to see what else I'm good at. My coaches Cecile and Laurent are from Paris, so I think that would be a good run to end with them there. I'll see where we go."

She added that she hopes people look back on her career and say, "'Wow, she was actually really happy doing this, and she was good.' I think that speaks volumes."

Biles recently made history by winning her seventh national women's all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships - the most won by any American woman.

"I think I can speak for myself and other athletes: we're all ready to show what we've been working on for so long and get out there and represent our countries," she told InStyle in a recent interview. "I'm super excited about it. I know it'll be different, not like the Olympics we've ever had before, but I also think that's what makes it special too."
