About the Author

Gabrielle Douglas is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she made history, becoming the first US gymnast to take home a team and an individual gold medal in the same Olympics. Gabrielle began her training at age six, and became the Virginia State Champion only two years later. When she was fourteen, she left her family in Virginia Beach to train with coach Liang Chow in Des Moines, Iowa. Under Chow's guidance, and with tremendous faith in God's plan for her, Gabrielle competed in the Olympic Trials and walked away with the only guaranteed spot on the team. Since her Olympic triumph, Gabrielle has used her platform to inspire millions with a powerful message: With hard work and persistence, any dream is possible.

I would recommend the book to anyone who is a gymnastics fan and a Gabrielle Douglas fan. I loved all of the pictures. It's a beautiful book and definitely worth the money. Michelle Burford is an exceptional author who works with her client to produce a wonderful book.

I gave this book to my nine-year old niece who is a very dedicated gymnast and she walks around with the book all the time. It is a very inspiring book for her. I haven't read it, but she loves it.

I won this book from Goodreads and quite enjoyed it. This title is for younger readers (ages 8 and up, per the publisher). It gives a brief biography of the Olympic champion, relates how her values formed from the strength of her family and through their faith. Written in a style that will keep speak to a elemnentary/middle schoolers, and filled with gorgeous photos, this book by Gabby Douglas is first rate.

I looked at the book, she is an inspirational to us all. I cannot do this because I am a little too old for this but I admired this girl, Gabby, just the same..... Just hope she can keep her head on her shoulder, be wise, and still be a good person as she is now...... Hope for the best in her future.....
