Gabrielle Christina Victoria Douglas is an American artistic gymnast who began her training at Gymstrada Gymnastics, Virginia Beach in October 2002, and later transferred to Excalibur Gymnastics in July 2004. She was a member of the gold-winning U.S. team at the World Championship 2011. She won gold medals in both the individual and team events at the 2012 Summer Olympics as a member of the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team. She was the first Afro-American female gymnast to become the individual all-around champion in Olympic history. Gabby was also the first American female gymnast to secure gold in both the individual and team events at the same Olympics. She is also the only American champion to win multiple gold medals in same Olympic. Despite making America proud, she was criticised particularly for her hair by a group named Ugly Americans with a surprisingly large number of female African-American members.
