"I knew I had more to give to the sport for myself and I felt like I had a purpose," she said when asked about her decision to come back. "And now, I feel like I do, and it's to be a voice for the younger generation. And I feel like I've done that. So, I feel like God just called me."
Biles is one of hundreds of gymnasts to say she was abused...
"I just feel like everything that happened, I had to come back to the sport to be a voice, to have change happen," Biles continued. "Because I feel like if there weren't a remaining survivor in the sport, they would have just brushed it to the side. But since I'm still here, and I have quite a social media presence and platform, they have to do something. So, I feel like, coming back, gymnastics just wasn't the only purpose that I was supposed to do."
