Olympics Day 11 - Gymnastics - Artistic

Gabby Douglas is getting back into an olympic start of mind. According to reports, the two-timegold medalist is back in the gym.

The young gymnastics is ready to make her country proud, again, at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. She’s teamed back up with coach Liang Chow at his gym in West Des Moines, Iowa. “Coming back was just very exciting. I definitely missed my team sisters,” Gabby told the Des Moines Register.

During a recent interview with BET, the 18-year-old said competing in the 2016 Olympic games is her main focus. “Right now things are slowing down because I’m in training, but hopefully I will be able to compete this year. Now my main goal and focus is to compete in the Olympics in 2016. I’ll be 20 years old,” she said.

“Gymnastics is a young girls’ sport, so when people start reaching maturity at age 19 and 20 it gets a little difficult,” she added. “Right now for me training is the same as it was before. So I honestly believe it will stay the same. I’m still fresh and quick and fast. And my mom gave me a pretty good body type [laughs], and so did the Lord. I’m really thankful about that.”

The Gabby Douglas Story, a Lifetime movie based on her life, is available on DVD today.
Go, Gabby, go!
