Gabby Douglas, the 16-year-old sensation from Virginia Beach, Virginia, wowed the Olympics and silenced critics with her Gold medal performance in the London 2012 Olympics.
Douglas is the first woman of color in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion, and the first American gymnast to win gold in both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics. She was also a member of the gold-winning US team at the 2011 World Championships.
Congratulations Gabby for your storied performance that is sure to be in the history books for years to come! Thank you for being an inspiration to young girls everywhere! #
