Gabby Douglas: “I almost quit gymnastics to work at Chick-Fil-A”

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

We all know about Olympic superstar Gabby Douglas.   Gabby is now a household name and will probably be one for the rest of her life.  She has inspired millions by doing what seemed to be impossible and setting a new standard on how high our kids can fly when they put their minds to it.

According to The New York Daily News, Gabby sent a text to her mother a few years ago saying, “gymnastics is not my passion anymore.”  She said that she wanted  to stop training every day and “be a normal teen.”  Being normal to Gabby, according to her new book, meant “getting a job at Chick-Fil-A.”

In her new memoir, Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith, Douglas mentions that the big move to Iowa to train at the highest levels was a difficult challenge for both she and her mother.

    When the Union formed, thirteen nations joined together under the
    Maastricht Treaty. If you intend to make Ireland your permanent home and remain there indefinitely you can choose to be considered an Irish resident the entire time if it will be to your
    tax advantage.
