Rucuss staffAugust 3, 2012

Gabby Douglas became the first American gymnast to win gold medals in both the all-around and team event at the Olympic games.

The 16-year old was also the first African-American to win the all-around competition on Thursday. Her performance garnered 35.7 million viewers on NBC, which was up eight percent from the Beijing Olympics competition four years ago.

Douglas received plenty of shout outs from celebrities as well as President Barack Obama. Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Michael Phelps and Nicki Minaj were just a few celebrities that congratulated her on Twitter.

A day after winning the gold in the all-around, Douglas was presented by Steve Penny of USA Gymnastics on Friday with her very own special edition box of Kellogg’s in London.

Douglas’ Kellogg’s box will hit shelves in the fall. This is only the first of many endorsements for the 16-year old.
