Gabby Douglas was thiiiiiiis close to being committed to an insane asylum last year when she told her coaches and her family that she was going to quit gymnastics and try and get a real job — at Chik-fil-A.
Here's what she says about it, which isn't much. We wouldn't want to think about what might've been either:
"What was I thinking? My life has changed so much. It's been really fun."
We are SO happy she didn't. That would've been nuts!
You know, because she became the first black woman ever to win Olympic gold in individual all-around gymnastics… and is only 16 years old.
Wow, we can't get past how much of a different life she'd have. She'd probably never know about what would've happened, but it still would've been a bummer. Y'know, because Chik-fil-A is homophobic and all!
