Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas shares her story in "Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith"

 
She wowed us on the mats at the 2012 Olympics and now two-time gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas is sharing her incredible story in Grace, Gold and Glory: My Leap of Faith.

Gabrielle has teamed up with writer Michelle Burford to pen this awe-inspiring memoir that spills on her tumbles and stumbles on the way to Olympic victory. From battling a rare blood disorder to facing financial hardship, Gabrielle’s story is one filled with ferocity, determination and faith.

 
Jumping through hoops
Gabrielle tells all about her journey to the top—leaving her family at the mere age of 12 to train 3,000 miles away, dealing with multiple injury setbacks, pushing past that horrific fall from the balance beam during the 2011 Visa Championships and surviving the super intense media scrutiny during the 2012 Olympic games in London.

“[I want to share] how much my family and I have overcome during our journey,” says Gabrielle. “It hasn't been easy. I want people to read my story and say, 'If Gabby can do it, I can do it too. Anything is possible.'"

A medal-worthy message
Grace, Gold and Glory: My Leap of Faith also also shares how Gabrielle was supported by her close-knit family and unwavering Christian faith. With the motivating message that devotion and determination deliver all things, Gabrielle’s story will make you wanna flip (literally).
