Gymnastics star Simone Biles has revealed whether she's eyeing the 2024 Paris Olympics.

On Thursday (September 7), Biles appeared on Today, saying of next summer's Olympics: "That's the path I would love to go."

"I think we have to be a little bit more cautious about how we do things, so everything that we're doing leading up to this next Games or whatever is very intentional," Biles continued. "So we've kind of been playing it on the down-low this time, making sure mentally and physically are both intact. So I think it’ll be different, but it’ll be good."

Biles' comments come after she made history last month by earning a record eighth national all-around title at the US Gymnastics Championships in San Jose, California.

The gymnastics star previously withdrew from several events during the 2021 Tokyo Olympics while dealing with the "twisties." Biles addressed how she was able to get over the "twisties" during Thursday's appearance on Today.

"A lot of trust in my coach, my teammates, myself, most importantly," Biles said. "Coming in that gym and making sure I'm doing those numbers, the repetitions, feeling confident in them. … As long as I showed up for another day and kept putting that work in, then it kind of went down and dwindled, so right now I'm feeling really good.

"I think I still sometimes doubt myself, but I'm still doing my therapy and making sure everything's aligned," she added.
