The champion! Gabby Douglas soars to all-around gold at London Olympics
Who did more loop de-loops than any other Gymnast? Gabrielle Douglas. Who balanced on the deadly-if-you-dare balance beam and owned it? Gabrielle Douglas.
That was the name thousands were cheering on as Douglas soared her way to gold tonight winning the all-around competition with a whopping 62 points. The 16 year old Gymnast left her parents home in Virginia Beach, VA at the age of 14 to perfect her craft in Iowa.
Little did she expect, two years later she’d be a world champion gymnast with gold medals to her name.
