Gabby Douglas Makes US Olympic Gymnastics Team
I ended up watching the rest of the trials from the point I stumbled upon it because Gabrielle was leading the Olympic trails competition with two rotations to go over Jordyn Wieber, the current world champion.
Douglas won gold at last year's Pan Am Games and hopes to make history by repeat the feat in London. She eventually won one of the two automatic spots on the team by holding on to her lead over Wieber. Elizabeth Price made the team as a replacement athlete as well.
It also gives me a heads up on another event and athlete I'll be keeping my eyes on when the London Games get started on July 27.
