There she is, above the fold over FIVE columns, soaring impossibly high above that incredibly slim balance beam. Gabby Douglas, Olympic Champion, winning the all-round women’s gymnastics gold medal with her strength, grace, style and sheer zest for her sport.
Gabby’s discipline, focus, persistence and ability to overcome the natural fear of twirling one’s body around in the air are qualities to admire —- and, as we can, to emulate (except for that part about twirling one’s body around in the air, at least not for me!). We congratulate her, and celebrate this latest example of high achievement in women’s sports!
