Gabby Douglas wins Sportswoman of the Year

    Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas is closing out the year with another award.

    Gabby, who took home two gold medals in gymnastics at the 2012 London Olympics, has just been named Sportswoman of the Year by the Women’s Sports Foundation, The Associated Press reports.

    Gabby was bestowed the honor on Wednesday night, beating out six other women, including three fellow Olympians: tennis star Serena Williams, track and field sprinter Allyson Felix and U.S. swimmer Missy Franklin.

    Gabby made history by being the first Black woman ever to become the Olympic women’s gymnastics all-around champ. She also won a team gold medal as part of the women’s gymnastics team.
