Solid Gold Gabrielle Douglas - An Olympic Queen

I am just struck with awe every time I see this photograph:

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.
