The road to Olympic gold is never easy, but for Gabby Douglas, it was especially difficult. The 16-year-old gymnastics phenom opened up to Vanity Fair about the bullying she endured before she became one of the Fiece Five.
Gabby began her training at Excalibur Gymnastics in her hometown of Virginia Beach, Va., and says she was the target of bullying from both her fellow teammates and a coach. Among the things Gabby endured: being called the team's "slave" and having her clothing stolen out of her locker.
But Gabby said the most hurtful incident came courtesy of a coach, who suggested she get a nose job.
Gabby also opened up to Oprah Winfrey about these incidents, and Excalibur denied Gabby's story.
