U.S. Olympians Carmelita Jeter, Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards-Ross and Gabby Douglas look absolutely beautiful on the cover of Essence magazine’s December issue.
16-year-old Gabby Douglas stole the hearts of many as we watched her compete in the gymnastics division of the 2012 London Olympic games. Since her huge win, she has been featured in several magazines, on TV shows and even snagged several endorsement deals. Go Gabby!
Carmelita Jeter became the only woman to win medals in this year’s 100 meter and 200 meter races while Allyson Felix became the most decorated female track athlete in this year’s games. Felix took home three gold medals, the most for a female track athlete since 1988.
Sanya Richards-Ross won two gold medals and became the first American woman to win the 400 meter dash in 28 years. She is also gearing up for a reality show on WE TV. Can’t wait for that, I think she’ll be interesting to watch.
Make sure you check out their interviews in the magazine and be inspired by their accomplishments!
