Major deal right? Well, of course! Not only are both of these ladies beautiful, but they are tremendous athletes that share the goal of shooting for the gold at this year’s Olympics, taking place in Rio.

At age 16, Gabby was flipping left and right earning a number of awards – including becoming the first African American to win gold in the All-Around. Douglas shares her insight on how to overcome doubt and fear.


Simone Biles, 19, is also ready to make it happen this year. As a young woman who has beat the World Gymnastics Championships three times and has taken home 10 gold medals, Biles is pushing herself to the limit this year.
