Gabrielle Douglas – Gymnastics
The week before trials, gymnastics aficionados had already
put Gabby Douglas on the Olympic team, a step behind world champ Jordyn Wieber.
And after the first day of competition, it looked like the status quo would
hold…until Gabby knocked out a stellar day two and seized the win—and the
automatic bid to London. We’re not sure what we love about her more: her
gorgeous smile, her grace or her nickname, “the Flying Squirrel.”
