Gabrielle Douglas—learn that name.

If you do not know who Gabby Douglas is, you will by the end of the Summer Olympics. 

The 16-year-old has been training in gymnastics since she was six years old, and it looks like all that hard training might finally pay off in London, where she is expected to bring home the gold for the U.S. women's gymnastic team. 

Winner of two gold medals at the 2010 Panamerican Games in Guadalajara, two gold medals at the 2012 Pacific Rim Championships and one gold medal at the Tokyo World Championship, this Virginia Beach native is seeking her first Olympic gold medal. 

Her stiffest competition on the London mats may come from her own teammate, Jordyn Weiber, but despite this, the uneven bars expert may soon show everyone how athletic she really is. 

Talented, disciplined and charismatic, this young woman may be a relative unknown now, but come September, she will be featured on Wheaties boxes and Gatorade bottles every where. 

Expect great things from this soon-to-be superstar and keep and eye out for her on the mats. The best of her is yet to come.
