WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME TWO AMAZING BLACK GIRLS WON THE TOP SPOTS AT THE GYMNASTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS? HINT: ITS THE FIRST AND I AM SO PROUD OF SIMONE BILES AND GABBY DOUGLAS FOR CONTINUING TO MAKE HISTORY!
No, but do you realize how BIG today was for gymnastics? 3 years ago Gabby Douglas became the first Black woman to win the Olympic All Around title. She had to put up with tons of racist comments made on social media. 2 years ago Simone Biles became the first Black woman to win the World All Around title. She had to put up with a fellow competitor making racist comments to the media. Earlier this year it was the first time in 35 years the reigning Olympic champion and World champion were in the same competition, and here they are now taking the first 2 spots at the last World championships before the next Olympics.
Gabrielle Douglas, the first ever African American Olympic All Around Champion, and Simone Biles, the first ever African American World All Around Champion just keep making history. The two will compete together in the 2015 World All Around Finals.
