Olympics Day 11 - Gymnastics - Artistic

It’s back to tumbles and splits for Olympic gold-winning Gabby Douglas.

The now 18-year-old gymnast has resumed her workouts with coach Liang Chow of Chow’s Gymnastics and Dance Institute for the first time since last August.

“Coming back was just very exciting,” Douglas tells the Des Moines Register. “I definitely missed my team sisters.”

This workout marks the first step in her attempt to make the U.S. Olympic team for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. Chow says it was a productive day for Douglas despite the eight-month break.

“Her attitude was very wonderful,” Chow says. “She was a little rusty, of course. But the attitude, the working, has never left.”

      Halls routine is good for college but too basic to compete on the intl elite scene. She’s an awesome college gymnast. Just leave it at that.
