    Gabby Douglas

    Jew Score:



    December 31, 1995 —

    "I used to be Jewish." — Gabby Douglas

    Well, that's a new one. Perhaps Aly Raisman is not the only Jewish representative on America's current gymnastic dynasty? Although that "used to" qualifier is rather strange...

    "Well, not exactly Jewish — but my family practiced some of the Jewish traditions."

    That's for clarifying that, Gabby. Turns out that the Jewish traditions were her mother studying Hebrew and cooking kosher meals, and her family celebrating Shabbat and going to synagogue for a year.

    "Our weekly trips to the synagogue eventually faded, partly because mom's Nissan Altima broke down..."

    Thanks, shoddy Japanese engineering! If not for you, we might have had ANOTHER Jewish all-around champion...

    Verdict: Not a Jew.
