After captivating the nation during the Olympics, gold medalist Gabby Douglas
appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
Douglas – who told Leno she "definitely" plans to compete in the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro – carried her two gold medals on stage, giving one to Leno and one to fellow guest, Michelle Obama
Douglas made history when she won the all-around gymnastics competition at the Olympics
, making the young athlete the first African-American woman
to do so. She also won gold in the team final
alongside fellow Team USA gymnasts Jordyn Wieber
, McKayla Maroney
, Alexandra Raisman
and Kyla Ross
With the London Games
finished, Douglas admitted she celebrated her victories by indulging in fast food.
"You're setting me back, Gabby," Obama, who is a health advocate,
"Sorry!" Douglas replied.
Leno later asked the gymnast if winning gold at the Olympics was everything she had dreamed.
"I think it's very different and when I mean 'different,' it's in a better way. I mean, I never thought I would be doing the show with the First Lady, or even you, Jay," she said.
