Gabby Douglas has barely had time to enjoy her Olympic all-around gymnastics success and now it’s time to get back to work.

Douglas and the rest of the U.S. women’s team convened Monday night in Ontario, Calif., to begin rehearsals for the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions. Nastia Liukin, the 2008 Olympic all-around champion, is participating and helping choreograph the three-month tour that opens Sept. 8 in San Jose.

Liukin says she’s been impressed with how Douglas has handled herself since the 16-year-old wowed at the Olympics with a gold medal in the all-around. She’s encouraged Douglas to enjoy every moment of her newfound success and fame.

  • Watching Gabby during the Olympic 2016, I have realized she is just a cool & calm young lady, very poised. After the Olympic, she and the fab 5 were on several talk shows, they showed how giddy the other girls were. Gabby waited her turn for Zac Efron to acknowledge her then she held out her hands. There’s nothing wrong with that. She’s so girlie! So poised. The other gymnast, was jumping up and down screaming with excitement as they should! meeting a huge star. Gabby is just quiet. Great job gabby’s Mom! Gabby’s a doll leave her along! Cyber bullies. Gabby is a world gymnasts. What are you? Grow up people!
