I was watching Gabby compete in the Olympics and was so won over by her smile and her attitude that I decided to make a music video to cheer her on. Share it if you're cheering for her!

Gabrielle Christina Victoria "Gabby" Douglas (born December 31, 1995) is an American gymnast. She was a member of the U.S. team that won the gold medal in the team finals at the 2011 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Tokyo, Japan. She was selected to the national team which went on to win the Olympic gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She is nicknamed "Flying Squirrel" for her aerial performance on the uneven bars.
Douglas is the daughter of Timothy Douglas and Natalie Hawkins. In 2010, at the age of 14, she moved from Virginia to West Des Moines, Iowa so she could train with Liang Chow, who is the coach of 2008 Olympic balance beam champion Shawn Johnson. She lives with a host family, whose daughter also trains gymnastics at Chow's gym.
Douglas started gymnastics when she was 6 years old, after her sister Arielle convinced her mother to let her do gymnastics. Gabby went on to earn the 2004 State Championship title in Virginia.
Douglas made her debut on the national scene at the 2010 Nastia Liukin SuperGirl Cup, a televised Level 10 meet held in Worcester, Massachusetts, where Douglas placed fourth all-around.
Her first elite meet was the 2010 CoverGirl Classic in Chicago, Illinois, where Douglas placed third on balance beam, 6th on vault and 9th all-around in the junior division.
In the preliminary round of competition at the 2011 World Championships, Douglas delivered a strong performance on every event, placing fifth (57.6570) all-around.
During the women's team final competition, Douglas contributed to the U.S. effort on uneven bars (14.733), where her skills included a Tkatchev and a tucked full-in dismount. The U.S. won the team gold medal (179.411) over second-place Russia (175.329) and third-place China (172.820).
Douglas continued to pursue her goal of making the Olympic Team in 2012 and appeared first on the leaderboard (61.032) at the conclusion of the AT&T American Cup at Madison Square Garden in March. Douglas received the highest total all-around score in the women's competition, ahead of current world champion and compatriot Jordyn Wieber.
Douglas competed at the 2012 Visa Championships in June. After scoring 15.3 on floor, 15.8 on vault, and 15.85 on the uneven bars she was able to take the silver in the all-around, ahead of Alexandra Raisman. She ended with a two day composite score of 121.7. She won two other medals: bronze for floor, and gold for uneven bars.
Douglas was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated with the rest of the USA Women's Olympic Gymnastics team on the July 18, 2012 issue of Olympic Preview. She appeared on Rock Center with Brian Williams on July 19. On July 20, Douglas was featured on one of five covers released on that day for TIME Magazine. Other versions featured fellow Olympians Ryan Lochte and Lolo Jones.
