Biles wasn’t really interested in the record. “I’ve been doing this for a long time,” said Biles, who won her first US title in a decade. “I’m not really interested in records. I’m mainly interested in my performance, but this is my lucky number this year.” since.
After a difficult period, Biles says, she is trying to approach her career differently. “I know what I want and what my goals are, but I keep things to myself,” Biles said. “It’s doing well so far.” She can prepare for the World Cup in Antwerp next month, but was unwilling to comment on whether she would like to appear at the Games in Paris after the US championships.
