Gabrielle Douglas in the Smithsonian

Douglas is giving the museum the leotard she wore during her first competitive season in 2003 (she also wore the leotard when she won the Level 4 all-around title at the Virginia State Championships in 2004); the grip bag, wrist tape and uneven-bar grips she used at the 2012 London Olympics; …

Also on display will be personal photos donated by Douglas and an autographed copy of her new book Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith.

The National Museum of African American History and Culture was established as a Smithsonian museum by an Act of Congress in 2003. It is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history and culture.
