Gabby douglas,gymnastics queen

By Sara Eason(African american sucess)

She began gymnastics training at the age of 6 and just two years later became a Virginia state GYMNASTICS CHAMPION.

Gabby made history in 2012 as the first African American to make U.S. Olympic women`s gymnastics team since Dominique Daws in 2000.

She competed on all four events for the U.S. in the team finals, and amassed an enormous 61.465 total all-around score.

Family leads to sucess.

Douglas sister ,Arielle Hawkins ,saw Gabby's flexibility from an early age and convinced their protective mother to enroll the baby sister in gymnastics. Gabrielle is the first women of color of any nationality and the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual All-Around champion, all because of her lovely sister, who saw something in her that no one else saw.
