Let’s have a brief talk about Gabby Douglas. I fell in love with this girl instantly because not only is she an extremely talented gymnast but she seems so full of life and positive energy. Last night I watched with extreme emotion and pride as she carried, yes carried, the American Fab Five to the gold.
I’m not saying the other girls didn’t pull their own weight or that they didn’t do well (they quite obviously did) because it’s a team effort and it takes a team to win. That said, Gabby Douglas performed in every event and she performed extremely well in every event. She. Delivered.
And she deserves some fucking recognition for that.
Jordyn Weber, I am sad that you don’t get to compete in the All Around and I’m very glad that your team could help you win gold last night. But please, people, give Gabby Douglas the exposure she deserves. She’s a rockstar.
