  • U.S. Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas became the first African-American to win the all-around Olympic gold and the first American athlete to win both the team gold in gymnastics and the all-around gold medal. The 16 year-old left her home to live with a host family in Des Moines, Iowa two years ago to train for London. She has been nicknamed “The Flying Squirrel” by friends for her amazing aerodynamics. After winning in London, she’s been re-nicknamed “Golden Gabby” alongside her team members who have now been referenced as “The Fierce Five.”
