Ever since US Olympic champion Madison Kocian edited her Twitter bio, speculations have been made regarding whether she is retiring from elite gymnastics or not.

Kocian has recently updated her social media's bio and removed "elite gymnast" from it.

Her Twitter bio now reads "20. 3x World Champion. 2016 Olympic Gold & Silver Medalist! UCLA Gymnastics".

Last month, the 20 year old gymnast told NBC that she hasn't closed the door on her elite gymnastics career. She said that she will either stop in college and return to elite or finish her four college years and continue her life.

Kocian has suffered from multiple ankle injuries throughout her senior career which started in 2013. She was part of the 2014 and 2015 World gold winning teams. She was part of a historic four-way tie for the 2015 World gold medal on uneven bars with Russians Viktoria Komova and Daria Spiridonova, and China's Fan Yilin.

Her last elite competition was the Rio Olympic Games where she won gold with the team and silver on uneven bars.

She made her collegiate debut last January where she and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Kyla Ross made history by becoming the first Olympic gold medalists to compete as NCAA gymnasts.
