The Olympics were
cool and all, but Gabby Douglas got to take over Radio Disney!
During the show, they talked about all sorts of stuff — from the gold medals to her new
book, Grace, Gold and Glory : My Leap of Faith, which is a memoir of everything she's done so far! We hope she writes another one when she's old some day, it would be an amazing companion piece!
Plus, she has an upcoming guest appearance on Disney XD's
Kickin' It, where she plays herself — it premiers this summer! Before then, though, you can totes hear her on Radio Disney, as that will be ready for your ears on May 13th!
So fab! We're glad everything seems so great for you, Gabby!!

Gabby Douglas posed with her memoir, and now, she's not only showing off her new book, Raising the Bar, but she also did a book signing!!
On Wednesday, the 17-year-old gymnast headed to a
Barnes & Noble in New York City, where she dressed in a cute top, jeans and boots, to sign her new published piece for lucky fans.
Gabby is set to compete in the 2016 Olympics, and while she trains for the next few years, we're pretty sure she's gonna be doing more inspirational things like writing books.
After all, she did make history by being the first female of color and the first African-American gymnast, so we're thinking she can do anything she wants to do!!
Ch-ch-check out the cutie pie at her book signing (below)!

Gabby Douglas is way too young and waaaay too talented to not continue her Olympic gymnastics career! Plus, we just love her as a person and she's a joy to watch. Does that make it selfish on our part? Who cares!
We mean, she
is the first African-American woman to ever win a gold medal in the Olympics all-around gymnastics competition, and became the first U.S. gymnast ever to receive the individual all-around gold and team gold medals in a single Olympic games.
How do you not try and follow that up?
Luckily, she is!
