GABBY DOUGLAS

It was a summer of historic moments for the U.S. women's gymnastics team, thanks to Douglas and her teammates, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross and Aly Raisman. Dubbed the Fierce Five, they won team gold – something that hasn't been done since the 1996 Atlanta Games. Even more impressive: Douglas became the first African-American female to capture the top prize in the all-around event, the most coveted medal in the sport.
