With enormous talent and hard work she moved to the forefront of her sport and became the first African American to win the all-around competition.

Author Bio

Gabrielle Douglas is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she made history, becoming the first US gymnast to take home a team and an individual gold medal in the same Olympics. Gabrielle began her training at age six, and became the Virginia State Champion only two years later. When she was fourteen, she left her family in Virginia Beach to train with coach Liang Chow in Des Moines, Iowa. Under Chow’s guidance, and with tremendous faith in God’s plan for her, Gabrielle competed in the Olympic Trials and walked away with the only guaranteed spot on the team. Since her Olympic triumph, Gabrielle has used her platform to inspire millions with a powerful message: With hard work and persistence, any dream is possible.

    This review was written for Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith.
    My goal is to find some inspirational Christian book to read to my 9 year old before bedtime. While it is a wonderful book to learn about her hard work and experience, it falls short of biblical truth of how to view success and fame etc...
