She was born in virginia Beach, Virginia.
Why Gabby is a Hero?
Gabby was the first African American woman in Olympic history to win the individual all around championships in gymnastics.
When Gabby was only 14, she moved from Virginia to Iowa to train harder. She left her family and friends behind. When she was 16, she entered the olympics and won 2 gold medals.
I admire Gabby because we both practice gymnastics and believe in God. Gabby plans to compete in the 2016 olympics.
