I haven’t yet seen the routines that won Gabby Douglas her gold medal in the Women’s All-Around event (NBC’s clips aren’t available for viewing in sweet T&T), but I’ve been following along and I’m in awe of this powerhouse for a bunch of reasons.
This video is so touching and it gives an amazing glimpse into the kind of sacrifice it takes to achieve greatness. Go Gabby.
Though I couldn’t find a clip of yesterday’s performance, I did stumble upon her routine for the Olympic trials. Aside from a little shakiness on the balance beam, she’s wonderful to watch.
Oh and, if you’ve got another couple of minutes, feel free to check out this clip of her in the GymTruth Booth. Too cute for words. :)
