Olympic gold medal winner Gabrielle Douglas has landed her own reality TV show.

“Douglas Family Gold” will air this fall via the Oxygen network and will chronicle Gabrielle as she prepares to become the first gymnast in nearly fifty years to try and defend her title at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Gabrielle however isn’t the only Olympic hopeful in the family. Older brother, John, is also looking to make his way to the big games via track and field and is hoping to follow in his sister’s footsteps by bringing home gold as well.

Gabrielle Douglas Wins Gold

Sixteen year old American gymnast Gabrielle Douglas made history earlier today, becoming the first African American woman to win the Gold medal in the women’s gymnastics individual all-around. She also became the first American gymnast ever to win Gold in both individual all-around and team all-around at the same Olympics.

With two Gold medals under her belt, Gabby has the opportunity to take home two more when she takes part in the finals for the uneven bars on August 6th and the balance beam on August 7th.

Congrats to Gabrielle. I hope she knows Brown Sistas all over the world are rooting for her.
