Gabby started getting interested in gymnastics when her older sister taught Gabby how to do a one-handed cartwheel when she was only four years old.

When Gabby knew that gymnastics would be her passion she told her mom she wanted to have lessons with a professional coach. The only problem was that the coach she wanted was in Iowa. Gabby then took a big step and moved to Iowa with a new family.

Gabby was in the 2011 world championships with her USA gymnastics teamates and placed fifth best score on the uneaven bars, yet her team placed first all around.

After the World Championships Gabby went to the 2012 London Olympic Games and placed first. She is now the world's greatest gymnast.
