Gymnastics legend Oksana Chusovitina said she plans to bid for a ninth Olympics in 2024 in Paris, according to the Uzbekistan Olympic Committee.

"I thought about it well and decided that after the Asian Games, I would also prepare for the Paris 2024 Olympics," answered the 46-year-old artistic gymnast when being asked about the impact of the postponement of the 2022 Asian Games.

The 19th Asian Games, which was scheduled to be held in the Chinese city of Hangzhou from September 10 to 25, has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

Chusovitina returned to competition earlier this year after a brief retirement. In the few short months of her return, the eight-time Olympian has won two golds and one silver on vault at three International Gymnastics Federation World Cup events. Last weekend, the 1992 team gold medallist also won the vault title at the Uzbek national championships.
