Congratulations Gabrielle Douglas!

Gabrielle Douglas in action
At the Olympics today Gabrielle "Gabby" Douglas won the gold medal in the individual all-around gymnastics final.  Gabby is the third consecutive American all-around winner and first African-American to ever win this competition.  Here's Gabby in her own words about today's win:

"When I got to the competition and all the nerves kicked in, I didn't feel a thing. Tonight, I didn't think about avoiding mistakes -- that's what gets you into trouble. Instead, I just thought about going out there and representing Team USA, my coaches, my family and myself"
