By Aaron Humes: Pint-size Olympian gymnast Simone Biles has told ABC News that she and her teammates are planning to visit Belize on vacation – once she’s gotten back to normal life.
“We all want to go on vacation, not just one probably a couple of them. We all want to go to Belize together and then after that, we’ll probably do family vacations,” she explained.
But first, there is a tour for cereal maker Kellogg which has created new Team USA-themed cereal boxes.
Biles is on cloud 9 after securing four gold medals and a bronze in Rio – not to mention a smooch from her celebrity crush, Zac Efron.
“I was very surprised,” Biles said on ABC News’ Good Morning America of her kiss from Efron. “He came out and I was just so shocked. I thought I was going to die.”
The Olympian will soon return to the United States to celebrate her record-breaking victories.
“I’m very excited to go back to the states and try to get back into normal life, but we have the Kellogg’s tour so that’ll be crazy but super, super fun, we’re all excited,” she said. “I don’t know. We heard what it’s going to be like, but you don’t know until after.”
As for 2020, Biles plans on enjoying the present before returning to the gym.
“As of now, I know whenever the ‘Fierce Five’ got back, Aly [Raisman] told me they were really busy for a year, so I imagine that’s what it’s going to be like and we’re just going to enjoy the time because like Aly keeps telling us we deserve it. And so, we’ll just have fun and get back to work whenever things slow down, which I imagine will be a while,” she said.
Biles also had a message for young fans trying to achieve their dreams.
“Always work hard and have fun in what you do because I think that’s when you’re more successful,” she said. “You have to choose to do it.”
