LONDON (AP) — Wondering if Sanya Richards-Ross is coming back to the Olympics?

Check back in 2015.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Sunday, Richards-Ross said she wants to compete in Rio in 2016 but can't fully commit to anything until they get a little closer.

She plans to run the world championships next year, then take a year off before making a commitment.

Competing in her third Summer Games this year, the 27-year-old distance runner earned her first individual gold medal when she won the 400 meters last week. She added another gold in the 4x400-meter relay, giving her four golds and a bronze.
