Gabby Douglas Makes History & Wins Olympic Gold Medal

Keeyah Aug 3 12 0 Comments

16-year-old Gabby Douglas just made history and is named the first African-American to win the all-around Olympic gold medal, the biggest individual prize in gymnastics.

She is known as “The Flying Squirrel,” and completely out-performed, dominated the competition, and before her closest competitor, Russia’s Victoria Komova even finished her floor routine, everyone in the area knew Douglas was the winner.

Gabby spoke on her win:

“I wanted to seize the moment,”

“It hasn’t sunk in yet. Team finals hasn’t sunk in yet. But it will.”

With her history-making performance, Douglas is sure to be the talk of the games now, securing her place along side legendary gymnasts like Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson, and Nastia Liukin.
