Beyoncé wrote, "A huge congratulations to 16 year old Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas – WOW – what a thrill to watch you take this Gold!  – enjoy this moment, its yours. Thank you for inspiring all of us! Love, B"

We should add that Beyoncé wasn't the only superstar to give a shout-out to Miss Gabby D on Twitter. Oprah, Estelle, Octavia Spencer, and, yes, President Obama all gave her a cyber-round of applause.

Way to go, Gabby!
