Hard days are the best because thats when CHAMPIONS are made" -Gabby Douglas

About Gabby

   When she was born, they were very poor. Her mother decided to live with her mother with her 4 kids until she found a job. Her mother had a husband but she got a divorce because he wasn't making enough money for his family. When gabby got to age 4, Her mother bought a house. Gabby was interested in doing flips and turns. Her mother got tired of her doing them in the  house so, she signed her up for gymnastics class. As gabby got older she got more determined. When she got to age 13, she wanted to go to the Olympics. Her mom let her stay with another family for 2 years to train with Liang Chow. She finally got to the Olympics in 2011, 2012,  and 2013.

what she struggled with, when she was a kid

It was her first day of gymnastics class, and she gets a mean comment from a team member saying she is to small and that she has a small nose. As she got older she almost quit because of the bullies, but she realized she was better, nicer, kinder. So she kept on going and look where she is now! She is an Olympic gymnast! that's pretty cool if you ask me.

Website Purpose & Publisher Information

    I  made this website because I  wanted others to  understand gabby in a tween kind of way. Like the main things in her life and accomplishments. I'm a student at Holman Middle School in VA. I enjoy gymnastics and soccer. I also created this sight because I wanted to share what i knew about her and why it related to me. Every time i'm at gymnastics practice me and my friends would talk about how good gabby Douglas is.

I like how you said more than just things about her gymnastics career, like how you said they were very poor and what they had to do because of it.
