Gabrielle Douglas

Living up to her nickname of "Flying Squirrel," Gabrielle Douglas, of the United States, won the individual all-around gold medal on day six of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Douglas made history as the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion and the first American gymnast to win a gold medal in both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics. Congrats Gabby!
