Gabrielle Douglas

Gabby is an accomplished US Women's Artistic gymnast, most known for her historic run at the 2012 London Summer Olympics, where she won gold medals in both the team and individual all-around competitions. Gabrielle is the first woman of color of any nationality and the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the Individual All-Around Champion. She is also the first American gymnast to win gold in both the gymnastic individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympic games. Outside of the gym, Gabby is nothing but smiles as the youngest member of her close-knit family. Inside the gym, she is extremely disciplined, focused, and determined. A healthy balance of family and training has always been very important to Gabby. Now, Gabby has set her next goal in making the 2016 Rio Olympic Team.  Making a consecutive team in gymnastics is nearly unheard of.  In addition to being at the top of her game, maintaining a balance of gymnastics and family is crucial to her success.
