  • World champion gymnast Simone Biles announced her decision to turn professional today and will no longer be eligible to compete in college. Biles signed with Octagon sports agency.
     
    According to NBC's Olympic Talk, Biles announced, “In order for me to be the best gymnast I can possibly be, I want to be sure that I have the necessary support and guidance in handling opportunities and demands outside of the gym. I know there are no guarantees, but I am excited and determined to be a member of Team USA at the 2016 Olympics.”
     
    Octagon is a "global sports, entertainment, lifestyle marketing and talent representation agency.” Other gymnasts who work with Octagon include 2012 Olympian Aly Raisman.
     
    Biles previously committed to compete for UCLA but becoming professional means she will lose her amateur status and as a result not be able to compete as a college athlete. 
     
    Simone is the back-to-back World all-around champion and hasn't lost an all-around competition since 2013. She recently won the all-around title at the 2015 Secret U.S. Classic and will be competing next at the 2015 P&G Championships.
