Congrats to Gabby Douglas & Team USA For Their Gold Medal Win!

NBC’s poor coverage delaying live streaming in the US aside, congrats to the ladies. This is the first top place finish since 1996 for gymnastics. Douglas performed well in all four of her individual meets.

    Dominique Dawes won a gold medal and a bronze medal in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympics.

    I was SO THRILLED, when my mother told me she was #1 in the world! She's a beautiful representative for our country and AA females. If we AAW focus on being our best and at the top of the game, we can conquer these lies that are perpetuated about our worth.

    Very proud of Gabby. My hubby claims that she's not the first Black female to win the gold. Whether that's true or not, it's great for an African American young woman to have won gold in gymnastics this time around. Going to stay up late to see Gabby's performance on NBC tonight.

    Go on, Gabby!

    Yes!!! I was soooooo happy when they got the gold!! I've follow the Olympics with a passion, so I've been tuned in. She and her teammate are in the All-Around Final right now! I hope they win a medal, so proud of her.

    Yes!! Very proud of her and her team for their gold. Hopefully, Ms. Douglas will have many more Olympic medals in her future.

    WONDERFUL! I don't follow the Olympics, so thanks for sharing.

    Yay! Good for those young ladies. Meanwhile the UK has been doing crappily in some of the competitions!

    She was absolutely brilliant! She may not be the “media darling” but she is the best on Team USA’S women’s gymnastics team. That is a fact.
