2012 U.S. OLYMPIC GYMNAST GABBY DOUGLAS INSPIRES BLACK YOUTH; WINS ALL-AROUND

04 Aug

The win for Gabby Douglas at the 2012 London Olympics was amazing to watch.  She stunned many as she ran away with the Gold Medal in the individual gymnastic all-around finals.  But what makes this even most special, is the inspiration she brings to other young black women.

As a member of the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team, she proved that even a struggling middle-classed family, can accomplish a dream if they push hard enough.  When she felt the weight and loneliness of being away from her family during training, her big sister begged her to keep going.  And it really paid off.  Not only did she win an individual Gold Medal, her team took the Gold in the finals.

It just goes to show, no matter how many challenges you face in life…you can achieve greatness if you have tenacity and strength.  Gabby’s win shows our youth that hard work plus a goal equals success.

GO U.S.A. and GO Gabby Douglas!  Your win is guaranteed to inspire many more young champions of the future.

On another note, although I can’t even touch my toes…she inspired me as well!  Tried a cart-wheel but failed miserably:).
