Simone Biles has set her eyes on competing at the 2018 US Classics.

The American gymnast told NBC that she plans to have her competition comeback debut at the US classics of next year which will be held in July.

There, she will compete only on two events but will compete on all four at the P&G championships the following month.

The multiple World champion has previously announced that she will return to full time training next November. She has already started light training in August.

On muscle soreness and pain, she said "It’s going to be rough. But the muscle memory is there because I’ve come and I’ve played in the gym. All of my skills are basically still there. There are a couple of skills, like on [balance] beam, that I haven’t done yet, like a dismount, because why would I just chuck that? There’s no way. And I haven’t vaulted since the Olympics."

Biles has taken a break since the Rio Olympic Games where she won four gold medals. She said that she has always had in mind to take only one year off the sport.

The 20 year old gymnast's longtime coach Amiee Boorman moved from Texas to Florida and will not be coaching her anymore.

Simone will announce the name of her new personal coach soon.
