Gabby Douglas Training at Buckeye


2012 Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas is currently training at Buckeye Gymnastics, according to current Buckeye elite Nia Dennis.

After a fan directly asked Dennis if Douglas is training in the Ohio gym, Dennis confirmed and also stated that Douglas was undecided about whether she will continue to train at Buckeye on a long term basis.

Douglas recently left Chow’s Gymnastics after returning to train full-time in April. She stated that she’s still committed to training in the hopes of earning a spot on the U.S. team for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Buckeye Gymnastics is located in Westerfield, Ohio, and grew to national elite recognition with the rise of Dennis, a member of the junior national team who won the silver all-around and vault medals at the 2014 Pacific Rim Championships. Kittia Carpenter serves as head coach while 1992 Olympian Li Li also contributes to the elite program.

  2. Because being accused of being racist is SO MUCH WORSE than being the target of racism. In fact, it’s so AWFUL that you must immediately launch a vicious attack against the CHILD who experienced the racism.

    Plus the Black child could only have become an Olympic champion because she was practically CARRIED to the balance beam, etc. by the heroic white coaches. You know how lazy blah people are!

    It’s sickening.
