Olympic Gold Medalist And All-Around Champion Gabby Douglas To Visit The Washington Auto Show®!

In the news release, Olympic Gold Medalist and All-Around Champion Gabby Douglas to visit The Washington Auto Show®!, issued 05-Feb-2013 by Washington Auto Show 2013 over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that the fifth paragraph, first sentence, should read "Douglas will be appearing at the show on Friday from 5-7 pm." rather than "Douglas will be appearing at the show on Friday at 6:30 p.m." as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

Olympic Gold Medalist and All-Around Champion Gabby Douglas to visit The Washington Auto Show®!

WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The first African-American to win the most prestigious prize in gymnastics -- the Olympics' Individual All-Around Champion -- and the Associated Press 2012 Female Athlete of the Year Gabrielle Douglas will appear at The Washington Auto Show Friday evening to meet fans and sign autographs at the Toyota booth.

"With her winning and graceful smile, personality, and, of course, performances, Gabrielle Douglas is the stuff of champions, and we are practically doing somersaults over her upcoming appearance here," said Washington Auto Show chairman Robert Fogarty

The 17-year old artistic gymnast emerged from the 2012 London Summer Olympics with record-breaking performances that dazzled audiences worldwide. Now boasting deals with Nike, Kellogg, and AT&T, Douglas made Barbara Walters' 2012 list of "10 Most Fascinating People" (Walters called her "the tiny, tiny girl with the big, big smile" and Forbes' "30 under 30" in sports. Her story of perseverance and triumph, as chronicled in her best-selling book, Grace, Gold, & Glory, has served as inspiration, especially for lower-income children.

"I want people to think, 'Gabby can do it, I can do it,'" Douglas told the Associated Press. "Set that bar. If you're going through struggles or injuries, don't let it stop you from what you want to accomplish."
