Gabby Douglas has had the summer of a lifetime since she made history and won two gold medals at the 2012 Olympic games.
The 16 year old has been able to accomplish her life long dream, and now she may be accomplishing another one by being interviewed by Oprah!
Gabby recently sat down with the Queen of talk show hosting and talked about her journey to the podium, her mother’s sacrifices, and a lot more.
Oprah visited Gabby at her host family’s home in Iowa where the Flying Squirrel showed her what her life was like, and even took Oprah to the gym to show her a thing or two on the balance beam!
According to the OWN website:
Olympic gymnast Gabrielle "Gabby" Douglas won gold and the hearts of millions. Now, Oprah travels to West Des Moines, Iowa, to sit down with this 16-year-old gold medalist. Plus, Oprah meets Gabby's mother, Natalie; her three siblings; her coach, Liang Chow; and visits with her host family.
We can’t help but wonder and hope that Oprah asked Gabby how she feels about her hair critics!
The interview airs on Oprah’s Next Chapter on August 26th at 8/9c.
We’re so excited to see Gabby tell us about her journey on camera!
