Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas stands 4 feet 11 inches tall. The individual and team gymnast competes in the all-around, balance beam, floor exercise, uneven bars and vault disciplines.
Douglas became interested in gymnastics at an early age and was crowned Virginia State Gymnastics Champion after just two years of formal training. She left home at the age of 14 to train with Liang Chow, eventually earning a team gold at the 2011 World Championships and placing first at the 2012 Olympic trials. The Virginia Beach native went on to win gold medals in both team and individual all-around competitions at the 2012 London Summer Olympics, becoming the first American gymnast to do so at the same Olympic games.
