USA's Olympic champion gymnast says there are some parts of her upcoming biopic that make her uncomfortable

America's champion gymnast Simone Biles is both nervous and excited about her upcoming biopic, The Simone Biles Story. Biles, who won four gold medals at last year's Rio Olympics, has returned to the gym for training after a lengthy break following her success at the Games.

"It's kind of weird to think about [the film] but it's also pretty cool. As a kid, you dream 'I want this, and I want that', and then it happens! And it doesn't seem real. I'm excited to see it come to life, because even when I'm competing or doing something, everyone's watching. I wish I could watch myself in that sense, like, have an out of body experience, almost. This movie will give that feel to me," Biles, 20, told US website, usatoday.com in an interview yesterday.

And is there any part of the film that makes her uncomfortable? "In my book, and it will be in the movie too, I talk about my bratty phase. I was a brat at the time, so I'm kind of scared to see that brought to life. I don't think I really want to
relive that," she said.
