Before the women's gymnastics Olympic trials began, it seemed silly that anyone would ask if Gabby Douglas made the Olympic team.
But after a fall from the beam on the first of two nights of competition, Douglas found herself in an unfamiliar position: seventh place.
Admittedly, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist hasn't been quite herself as of late. For example, Douglas finished fourth at the national championships two weeks ago, and Gabby herself has said that her confidence isn't quite as high as it once was.
But still, before the fall from the beam during the first night of competition, everyone thought it was obvious that Gabby Douglas would make the Olympic team.
Turns out, everyone was right. Gabby Douglas made the Olympic team and is headed to the 2016 Olympic Games.
"Everyone" included Olympic gold medalists Shannon Miller and Shawn Johnson, both of whom told People that they believed Douglas would be headed to her second Olympic Games, alongside fellow 2012 Olympic teammate Aly Raisman.
"I'm excited to see both of them back at the Olympic Games," Miller told People. "They work hard and stay focused. That's a big deal. People ask, 'Why are you staying in when you've already done it and got a gold medal?' Gabby has said there's no ulterior motive other than 'I really think I can do it! I love gymnastics and I'm not ready to give it up.' That's the best attitude you can have."
