When Gabrielle was 16-years-old she told her mother that she was giving up gymnastics.  The Virginia native had been training in Iowa for over a year.  She moved there to pursue her dream to compete in the Olympics.  The "Flying Squirrel" missed her family who she left back home in Virginia.  

Her mother started crying after Gabrielle revealed that she wanted to work at Chick-fil-A in Virginia and give up on her dream to compete in the Olympics.  When Gabrielle informed her siblings of her plans to quit they responded with disapproval.  The gold medalist credits her family for their unconditional support and guidance.  We can't wait to see her compete in Rio!
