Gabby Douglas’ Road to Rio ran through the Prudential Center on Saturday, where most of the 12,541 fans in attendance at the 2016 AT&T American Cup seemed to be part of her personal cheering section.
“It means the world to me that my fans always come and support me and lift me,” the 20-year-old Virginia native said. “To have this positive energy and positive vibe, it just means a lot.” -Gaby Douglas
“I’m stronger now than in 2012,” said Douglas, who is aiming to become the first Olympic all-around champion to return to the Games since Nadia Comaneci in 1976 and 1980. “The form needs to be better, but my mental game is more there, and I feel more aggressive.”-Gaby Douglas
