Gabby Douglas, 16-year-old U.S. gymnast, has become the first African-American woman and the first woman of color to win Olympic gold in the all-around competition.

She achieved these historic feats moments ago at the London Olympics.

Douglas is the same age Mary Lou Retton was when she claimed gold in 1984, and like Mary Lou, Douglas is now destined to become an American celebrity.

Douglas, nicknamed the Flying Squirrel, already won team gold with her fellow U.S.A. gymnasts this week — making her the first U.S. gymnast to win team gold and individual gold in all-around. Another historic feat.
