Gabby Douglas

Nicknamed "The Flying Squirrel" for her ability to reach unreal heights in her routines, Gabby Douglas took first place at the Olympic Gymnastics Trials, defeating rival-teammate Jordyn Wieber for the all-around crown. Months earlier, at worlds, it was Wieber who took the all-around title. The pair will renew their rivalry in London.
