The five things you should know if you were only going to know five things about yesterday at the Olympics.
1. Gabby Douglas. She extended the American women’s all-around gold medal streak to three. She’s the first American woman to win gold in both the team and all-around events. She’s 4'11". And she’s 16—what have you done, we’re all failures, etc.—but none of that really matters. Well, it all matters. It all matters a whole lot, actually, but Gabby Douglas is also the first black woman to win the all-around gymnastics. That seems to matter way more than anything else. Gabby Douglas is amazing, basically. Human beings are not supposed to be able to do the things she did.
