Gabby Douglas finished with gold medals in the individual and team all-around in gymnastics. This, in my opinion, was a most remarkable achievement for this 16 year old. Let me also point out that she is also the first African-American woman to win gold in these categories. Gabby possesses not only skill but a most effervescense and gregarious personality that has endeared her in the hearts of millions around world. She will be a roll model to many young girls who want to be just like her. She has shown the world that at 4’11” one can acccomplish anything if a person puts their mind to it. She has truely lived the American dream. You go girl!
