Olympian Gabby Douglas to write Christian book

Published: Saturday, Oct. 10 2015 10:52 a.m. MDT

Our take: Gold medal gymnast and Olympic darling Gabby Douglas is writing a book. But it won’t completely focus on her Olympic exploits in London. Instead, it will be about how her faith and family played a role in her success.

"They call her the "Flying Squirrel" — Gabby Douglas, the pint-sized fire-cracker who won two gold medals (and the hearts of millions) at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

"Gabby can flip, tumble, vault, balance, swing, totally stick the landing, throw out the first ball at a Dodgers game, charm Jay Leno and Howard Stern (try that, Michael Phelps!), and high-five the First Lady — all the while exuding confidence, good humor and the greatest of ease through her cajillion-watt smile."
