Beyonce Congratulates Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas

gabby douglas wins olympics gold medal

Did you get to watch Gabby Douglas win the Gold medal in the Gymnast Individual All-Around competition last night? THRILLING! She seemed to be underestimated from the beginning with all the talk about her difficulty handling nerves. Yet I had a good feeling when she was the only member of the women’s gymnastics team who competed in all four rotations during the team competition (and they won the Team Gold!) My heart broke for World Champion Jordyn Wieber, but I’m thrilled for Gabby. So was Beyonce. Here’s what Beyonce wrote on her website:

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO 16 YEAR OLD OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST GABBY DOUGLAS - WOW – WHAT A THRILL TO WATCH YOU TAKE THIS GOLD!

I CAN TELL YOU’VE BEEN WORKING HARD FOR SO LONG – ENJOY THIS MOMENT, ITS YOURS.

THANK YOU FOR INSPIRING ALL OF US!

LOVE,
B
