[Image: Gabby Douglas, in a shiny pink leotard, leaps above the balance beam with her legs in an impressive split, her back and head curved backward, and her arms are extended at her sides. The scale of the photo, which takes in nearly the entire balance beam, makes it look as though Gabby is flying several feet above the beam, and it looks graceful, effortless, and astonishing.]

Everything about this image is perfect.
Gabby is the first black woman to win the Gold in the all-around, btw. This photo? Shows why she won.
This photo will have ten jillion notes.
