The 16-year-old Olympics gymnastics champion "gave God all the glory" after her dramatic win.

The Christian Post reported that American Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, 16, took the time to praise God after winning gold in the all-around competition in London this past week. In an interview with NBC following the win, Douglas gave thanks to God for his blessings and “gave him all the glory.”

“It is everything I thought it would be; being the Olympic champion, it definitely is an amazing feeling. And I give all the glory to God. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me,” she said during the interview. She brought God even stronger praise on Twitter: “Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me.”

Douglas is the first African American woman to win Olympic gold in women’s all-around gymnastics. Douglas was the underdog competitor leading up to the Games but surprised everyone by beating out the American favorite Jordyn Wieber for a spot in the all-around, then going on to best Russian Viktoria Komova for the gold.
