Short Bio Gabrielle Douglas
Gabrielle Douglas is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she made history, becoming the first US gymnast to take home a team and an individual gold medal in the same Olympics. Gabrielle began her training at age six, and became the Virginia State Champion only two years later. When she was fourteen, she left her family in Virginia Beach to train with coach Liang Chow in Des Moines, Iowa. Under Chow’s guidance, and with tremendous faith in God’s plan for her, Gabrielle competed in the Olympic Trials and walked away with the only guaranteed spot on the team. Since her Olympic triumph, Gabrielle has used her platform to inspire millions with a powerful message: With hard work and persistence, any dream is possible.

Review by Jackie
Overall Rating
Gabrielle Douglas is another excellent role model for young girls. "Raising The Bar' is a wonderful, fun book for tweens and teens that remember the powerhouse gymnast that took America and the 2012 Olympics by surprise.

Gabby's book, "Raising the Bar,' is full of photos, memoirs and personal notes that show how Gabby kept her faith and family at the center of her Olympic journey. My daughters )ages 3, 7, 10, 13) love flipping through this book at the pictures and reading how Gabby trains, stays healthy and even how she chooses her leotards.

This book is an excellent summer read for a Christian girl, looking for a faith-filled role model. I highly recommend it!
