What could be cooler than winning a coveted gold medal and becoming an instant household name? Um, how about having a celebrity give you a shout out!
After Gabby Douglas snagged gold in the All-Around Women's final, the U.S. gymnast was given a shout out on Beyoncé's blog. Gabby established a milestone yesterday as the first African American woman to take home this prize.
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"
Way to go, Gabby!
