Olympic Champion Gabby Douglas Honored With A Mural In Her Hometown
16-Year-Old Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas is a pretty big deal in her hometown……as in, big enough to cover an entire wall.
Gabby Douglas is really big in her hometown. Really big and painted on a wall.
The gold-medal-winning gymnast has a giant mural painted in her honor in Virginia Beach. And she loves it.
“WOW!!! This is amazing!! (hashtag)so honored,” Douglas tweeted Friday from the Olympics in London, where the 16-year-old won two gold medals at the Summer Games.
The mural shows Douglas holding a gold medal with an American flag backdrop. It says “Way to go Gabby.”
Media outlets report brothers Todd and Eric Lindbergh spent four days painting the 9-by-30 foot mural on the outside wall of a sports bar. Todd Lindbergh says he found out that Douglas was from Virginia Beach, and the idea behind the mural came the moment he saw her on television at a medals ceremony.
We love it!
