When U.S. Women’s gymnast Gabrielle Douglas won Olympic gold medals in both team and individual all-around competitions in 2012, the gifted teenager with the contagious smile made Olympic history as the first African-American gymnast to do so. Her breakthrough performance earned her the Sportswoman of the Year and YoungStars Award at the 2013 BET Awards. (Photo: Mike Windle/Getty Images for BET)
