“Gabby Douglas Wins 2012 Olympic Women’s Gymnastics All Around Gold Medal”
Published on Aug 2, 2012 by Jun Huang
“Gabrielle Douglas, a 16-year-old from Virginia Beach, took the women’s gymnastics all-around lead on her first event, the vault, and never let it go Thursday.
Douglas earned her second Olympic gold medal and became the first African-American Olympics all-around gold medalist by performing with ferocious power, high-flying aerial tricks on the uneven bars, a smartly cautious balance beam display and, finally, a joyfully exuberant tumbling romp on the floor exercise mat.
The silver medal went to Russia’s Victoria Komova, who wept in disappointment.”
Congratulations again to Gabby Douglas, and ALL Olympians! In tough times as these… inspiration, determination, grace, discipline, and Gabby’s beautiful smile makes the world smile, and be proud.
