Gabby Douglas who was on the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympics and won gold medals in both the individual all-around and team competitions gets her own wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s Museum. The Madame Tussaud’s Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco now showcases a statue showing off one Gabby’s greatest talents of the balance beam.
It took about four months to sculpt this piece and Gabby the first African American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion is very much appreciative. For me, it’s just an awe,” Douglas said. “Like, I never would have thought I would have a wax figure of myself. And it’s just, it’s amazing you know. I keep staring at it.”
