“I’ve been meditating on scriptures saying be confident in this. And, you know, the bible really helps me so I was very confident.” -Gabby Douglas, photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images (Photo credit: On Being)

Douglas said she had felt confident all along that she would win.

“It was just an amazing feeling,” she said, giggling. “I was just like, Believe, don’t fear, believe.”

Just five months ago, Martha Karolyi, the coordinator of the women’s national team, did not think Douglas had what it took to be an Olympian. She lacked confidence and focus, Karolyi said, even as recently as a few weeks ago.

Douglas disagreed. As this year went on, she thought more and more that she could make the London Games — and win. After sacrificing so much, she had no other choice but to push forward, she said. http://nyti.ms/RkyOon

Gabby Douglas has shown the world that when others count you out, if you believe in yourself and your ability to win, there is nothing that can stop you on your path to greatness. The Olympic two-time gold medalist, is living her life-like its golden and she is shining  bright for all the world to see. Congratulations Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas, your winning spirit and heart of gold shows in your dedication to the sport and are one of the grand representatives of Team USA!
