Simone Biles will compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

Simone Biles, widely regarded as the greatest gymnast ever, said Wednesday that she isn’t done with the Olympic Games quite yet.

She is planning to come back for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I’ll take some time off first but then I’ll get back at it and try for 2020,” the 19-year-old Biles told USA TODAY Sports while on the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions in Washington.

“I’ll take maybe a year off because there’s no way I can do everything that I’m doing as well as commit to training 100 percent,” she said.

Biles won four gold medals, including the individual all-around, and one bronze medal at the Rio Olympic Games. After that, is there still room for improvement?

“I think anyone can get better as long as you put your mind to it,” she said. “You set new goals. So I don’t know if I can but I would hope I can.”
