Simone Biles heads to Times Square with Team USA after Olympics

Star gymnast Simone Biles and teammates celebrated their return from the Tokyo Olympics with a stop in Times Square on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Olympian and company were spotted making the rounds among crowds in the Big Apple after an extended stay in Olympic village isolated by COVID-19 restrictions.

Biles was one of the Summer Games’ biggest names, even after she withdrew from the team final and other events over stress and the so-called “twisties,” a condition that affects gymnasts.

But she made a triumphant return after keeping fresh at a Japanese gym and won a Bronze medal this week, adding to her collection that already includes four gold medals.

Biles is open to the possibility of returning to the Olympics in 2024, when she’d be 27 years old.

“I think I have to relish and take this Olympics in and kind of recognize what I’ve done with my career because after 2016, I didn’t get to do that,” she told the “TODAY” show in an interview before leaving Tokyo.

Biles returned to the United States following the Tokyo Olympics, where she won a silver and bronze medal.
