Look how HIGH she is above the beam in that splits leap! I think she jumped higher than she is tall (4' 11")!
A wonderful, inspiring and inspired performance by Douglas Thursday scored her a well-deserved al1-around gold. She is the epitomy of the American girl next store, too -- cute, contagious smile, bubbly personality, and Sweet 16. Well done, Gabrielle Douglas! She will be a wonderful representative of the USA. I enjoyed every single moment watching her performances on television this week.
