In case you didn’t know, Gabby had made a spectacular comeback to the world of gymnastics after an almost eight-year hiatus. Her goal? To make it to the 2024 Paris Olympic team. Unfortunately, her ankle had other plans, and now her dreams of competing in Paris have come to an end.

In case you need a refresher, Gabby made history as the first Black gymnast to win the Olympic all-around title at the 2012 London Games. She also helped the U.S. snag back-to-back team golds in both London and Rio in 2016. Talk about an impressive resume!

Earlier this year, Gabby announced her grand return to the world of gymnastics in February. She made her competitive comeback in April at the American Classic in Katy, Texas, where she qualified for the U.S. championships. The girl was on fire!

People were devastated by the news but remained hopeful for her speedy recovery. Can we get some positive vibes going for Gabby?

But hey, it’s not all bad news. Gabby has her eyes set on the future, and it’s looking pretty bright. While the U.S. championships might have been her last shot at making it to the Olympic trials in Minneapolis in June, she’s not giving up. Gabby plans to keep training for the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles. You go, girl!

And guess what? She’ll be teaming up once again with her longtime representative, Lowell Taub of Range Sports. Talk about a power duo! Gabby is determined to show the world that her skills are still top-notch and hopes to represent the U.S. at the L.A. 2028 Olympics. Now that’s what I call dedication and perseverance!

So, here’s to Gabby Douglas, the queen of the gymnastics world, who’s faced setbacks but refuses to back down. Let’s cheer her on as she continues to chase her Olympic dreams. Go Gabby!
