Gabby Douglas, the 16 year old American gymnast that cleaned up at this year's Olympics, has deservedly won Sportswoman of the Year from the Women's Sports Foundation. But what makes a winner? Let's take a look at Douglas' accolades and achievements over the years.
Although 16 years doesn't seem a particularly long lifespan to amass world notoriety and massive achievement, that's exactly what Gabby Douglas has done. In the London 2012 Olympics she won gold in both the individual and team all-around competition. The all-around competition, for those of us that don't know, is exactly what it sounds like; competency all-around. Yahoo said that "In order to win the all-around competition, Douglas had to be dominant in multiple apparatus, including floor, vault, bars and beam." That's five whole disciplines to excel in, which Douglas did at such a level as to win two gold medals. Douglas' dedication to her sport saw her move across the country to train with Liang Chow and Shawn Johnson- who made sure she was the best of the best.
Of course, Douglas had some serious competition for the prestigious award, and Serena Williams, Allyson Felix, Lindsay Vonn, Jessica Long, Tatyanna McFaddyn and finally, another teenage Olympic superstar Missy Franklin. Franklin won 5 medals in the Olympic pool and is aged just 17. All the nominees are incredible women who represent a new and exciting elite group of women for girls to aspire to.
Date of birth
26th September, 1981
