Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

With three Olympic Gold medals and three World Championship medals under her belt, Gabby Douglas has been the most loved gymnast of this decade. Douglas burst into the hearts and minds of mainstream America in 2012 during the London Olympic Games when she became the first African-American woman to win an Olympic Gold medal in the All-Around Individual event. Since then, Douglas has been one of the most influential female athletes in the world and is continuously at the center of pop culture.
