Gabby Douglas has contributed much to US gymnastics and herself as a 2-time Olympian and 2012 all-around champion. However, following her 2016 Rio success, the gymnast had been quiet for a few years, only to announce a glistening comeback mid-last year. However, despite having missed the 2024 NTC, Gabby’s march for victory in the Paris Olympics seems robust and well-founded, backed by her impressive routines.

Douglas announced her return to the sport in July last year and has constantly updated fans on practice sessions ever since. On the 19th of January, the gymnast’s Instagram post was dedicated to the said pattern. Two sets of curious side eyes made it to Gabby’s Instagram story as she reshared a clip from Inside Gym. The Olympian was filmed on the beam initially and further on the bars with little support from the trainer on the side. Precision and agility all seemed on the mark for Douglas as she performed her flips.

Coming back to the grounds 6 years after a break wasn’t an easy feat for the 3-time Olympic gold medalist. “It’s a Thursday, and I’m so tired [laughs]. But we gonna push through, we’re gonna do it,” Gabby remarked in one of her earlier posts. However, following clear hours of practice, gymnastics excellence is back on the book for the gymnast. For Gabby Douglas who walked against fears for her return to the sports, the update shines a brighter light.

One take at a time

I was a little kid when my dad brought home a second horse out of his sheer love for the creatures. The excitement to ride and care for one from the first moment still gets to me as I watch the horses in action today; covering the intensity on the field. However, along the way of being immersed in the wider ground of equestrian sports, rodeo and bull riding lingered in the sight.
