    Indeed! What I love most about Gabby was watching her progress over the past year. To think, it was just eleven months ago that she fell off the beam three times at the US National Championships and cried afterwards! You’ve come a long way baby!

    Gabby Is Not A “Squirrel” as stated by Bob Costas of NBC! Mr. Costas Your On The Air Comment referring to Gabby as a “squirrel” It truly Un-Acceptable! For Bob Costas
    Referring To One Of The Most Suprising Gymnastics Performance in The History of the Olympics! And Ms. Douglas being African-American should not be associated with a
    wild animal!!!!

      Costas referred to the nickname given to her by U.S. Women’s Team Coordinator Marta Karolyi, which is the “Flying Squirrel” , because of the tremendous air she gets on her release skills on uneven bars. It’s meant as a total compliment, and based on her athleticism, not her race, you moron!
