I don't know about you but I've enjoyed watching little Miss Gabrielle Douglas fly through the air flipping and twisting and then BAM! STICK IT! This lil girl has been bringing me JOY! I love when she gives her interviews and she's all sweetly confident. I love how she is so supportive of her teammates. I love how she speaks about how much she loves what she does and how honored she is to represent our country in the Olympics. When she's kinda wobbly...I'm holding my breath and breathing hard, praying she recovers. When she hits something just right...I am yelling at the top of my lungs. GET.IT.GABBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHOW 'EM HOW TO DO IT! USA! USA! USA!
In short...she is QUITE impressive and I LOVE.ME.SOME.GABBY!
I read something yesterday about the 16 year old's hair that made me stop. Then I asked Mr. Google if other people were saying negative things about her hair and was FLOORED with what I found.
So yeah...I got annoyed at just how inappropriate people can be with the things they were saying about a 16 year old WORLD.CLASS.ATHLETE.
Did YOU pay more attention to her hair or to her skills and her confidence in her ability?
Did you hear others ridiculing the child because of her hair?
If you did...did you say something to counter it?
What do you think about the entire situation?
