The ‘Raising an Olympian’ Gabby Douglas video is a fascinating new perspective on the life of Olympic women’s gymnast Gabby Douglas. As one of the top three gymnasts in the world at this summer’s Olympic 2012 Games, Douglas has captured the attention and heart of the athletic world.
In the Raising an Olympian video, Douglas’ mom explains the difficulties and challenges it has taken to get Gabby where she is. Gabby’s sacrifices to her body, her family and her teenage years have been endless, but have made her an Olympian. The touching video details her life in Des Moines training with one of the best coaches in the world, living away from home with a host family and some of the struggles that have made the ‘Flying Squirrel’ a hit at this year’s Olympic Games.
