Gabby “The Flying Squirrel” Douglas has captured the gold medal in women’s all-around. Gabby becomes the first African American to win gold in the event.
Oh, and she turns 17 in December.
Ironically, before today the most noteworthy aspect of the all-around was the exclusion of world champion Jordyn Wieber. Now Team USA walks away with team and individual gold a feat they had never accomplished before.
