U.S. Olympic gymnast gets a superhero Barbie
U.S. Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas now has her own superhero Barbie doll.
Douglas will be headed to Rio for the 2016 Olympics after qualifying at the U.S. gymnastics team trials over the weekend.
Douglas began making history when she competed in the 2012 Olympics in London and became the first U.S. athlete to win both team and all-around gold medals at the London Olympics. She was also the first black gymnast to win an individual gold medal.
With her groundbreaking talents, Matell unveiled a “Shero” Barbie in her honor on Monday. The “Shero” line also includes Barbies for Misty Copeland, Ava DuVernay, Emmy Rossum, Eva Chen, Trisha Yearwood and Zendaya. The line focuses on female heroes who inspire girls by breaking boundaries.
