Olympic Champion Gymnast Is Back In Training

By Jim McCoy Mon 20th May SportsGabby Douglasgymnastics
Gabby Douglas is back in the gym. The Olympic all-around champion was to practice Monday afternoon after meeting with coach Liang Chow to discuss her comeback plan. The workout is in her old gym in West Des Moines, Iowa. Chow won't put a timeline on Douglas' return, saying she has to get back in gymnastics shape before they can put a training plan together. But he says 2014 is an "excellent opportunity" for her to be back in competition. Douglas has always said she'd like to keep going through the London Olympics. But she's been in such demand since London that she hasn't had time to train. Her last nine months have been a whirlwind of appearances. She was part of 40-city tour last fall with fellow Fierce Five members Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber and McKayla Maroney.
