Despite rough performance, Gabby Douglas makes to Olympic team of U.S.
The member of the gold medal winning U.S. team and all around champion of 2012 Olympic Games, Gabby Douglas will be heading to the Rio despite a rough performance where the 20 year old turned in suitable routines on the uneven bars and vault but fell off the balance beam at squid trials. Whether Douglas would be the part of the team including 2012 floor champion and teammate Aly Raisman, co-world champion and uneven bars specialist Madison Kocian, three time all around champion in the world Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez has been the chief question of the competition but the eligibility of the rising star is for the senior competition on the five women team this year.
After taking time off subsequent to the Olympics, the comeback trajectory of Douglas nine months ago seemed on course and boosted her into second place behind Boles in the al around competition and on top of the world team. But the 20 year old was struggling by the national championships that took place two weeks ago.
