They ripped the gym out of 10 grand and her ghetto mother refuses to pay. Other corruption and fraud by her family are surfancing.

As a former elite gymnast, I can tell you readers that what Gabby did is appalling! Her coaches selflessly devoted their time and years of hard work to help Gabby fulfill her dreams. At her level, it is unheard of to change coaches. Gabby already had all the skills requisite to win gold at the Olympics. To just switch to Chow less than two years before the Olympics was shameful on the part of both Gabby and Chow. I heard Gabby approached another coach in Texas and he declined to accept her out of respect for her coaches at Excalibur Gym in Virginia Beach. Gabby is set to earn up to 10 million in endorsements and said in recent interview she wants to buy a Bentley. Seriously?? A 16 y.o girl whose mother just filed for bankruptcy and owes Excalibur thousands, thinks she deserves to drive a car worth $300,000 or more! Disgusting! Gabby may be a first rate gymnast, but her mother did not instill any virtuous values in this young lady.

Hopefully this gold medal winner will pay off her debt when she receives some of the cash that will be coming her way.

If she doesn't, America will not be proud of her...no matter how well she performs.

I hope she does the honorable thing. If this accusation is false, I hope she sues for slander and wins.

What about the lack of protection against the bullies. It is a cop out to say you were unaware. Come on! Coaches and teachers are always aware!!!! They just look the other way!! They should be paying her!

I wouldn't pay either if my child was bullied and the coach turned the other way. Now you're here claiming her family were involved in some fraud. Hate is a product of ignorance. And that "Ghetto Mom" you refer to raised a gold medal winner while yours raised a racist.

She only did well in 1 routine at London. On the balance beam she looked like a kid falling out of a tree. She made the cut to get on the team by .01 over the top gymnast who was scored low so the USA can have a black.

She was more than likely bullied because she was black. She should consider taking legal action against the gym.

hmm...it's kinda smart of Gabby to spin racism on a gym she owes a serious amount of money. I'm not buying it, especially because so many gym members have defunct that charge.

I wouldn't pay the racist dogs either I'd sue the piece of trash for racism. Why does she owe them anything they allowed bullying they get what they deserve. She had to.go to Iowa because they are there to train not bully Bela has no time for their nonsense.Everyone is laughing at them because she is better than they will ever be. White people go bankrupt all the time but the take billions and rip off the whole country its called wall st suckas

Virginia Beach is a racist city. The 1989 Labor Day weekend events are plenty of proof of that. Hundreds of vacationing black college students were beaten mercilessly by Virginia Beach police simply for being out after curfew. The Mayor and Police Chief stated that they were simply trying to keep the students under control. The police were the ones that were out of control. This city has a very dark history when it comes to treatment of it's black citizens and visitors.

so vb is racist because they stopped a riot?
Go to Chicago where there's no "racism" and hundreds of blacks are shot every year....

So Gabby owes them blood and a few body parts for them supporting her. The goal of an Olympic athlete is to train to win and if her environment there was toxic or uncomfortable to her then she had the right to go where she could do that. The financial part is business and Excalibur is responsible for how it conducts it's financial affairs. We all have debt and a lot of people have debt problems. If they are not making their athletes pay that's on them. None of that however justifies racism and bullying or justifies their expectations than an athlete should continue to train in toxic environment. She made the right move at the right time because all of it lead to her bringing home the gold for America. Had she stayed at that gym we may not have taken home those medals.

I'm sure she'll have plenty of money now to pay you back but fate dictated that she escape that environment in order to win. If she had give Excalibur the body parts she owed them America may have been less the Gold.

The way I see it, she had to do what she had to do. She had a goal as all of the athletes did and she braved, family problems, financial problems, expectations of body part donations, racism , and criticism in order to do it, all at the age of 16...and WON! Business is business and not getting paid sometimes is a chance that many businesses take and many businesses cause. Even businesses don't always pay what they should. Those people didn't drive her around purely out of the goodness of their hearts. They are nurturing athletes and running a business for profit.

Thank God she didn't stick with tradition and changed coaches or we may have lost the gold. Appaling or not no one owes them body part. I'm pretty sure your "Appalled", but America is better off for her decisions which lead to her bringing home the gold.

Oh my God! You're appalled, what are we going to do? How can we ever survive now that you're "appalled". Regardless, looks like lil' Gabby made the right choices now doesn't it? She's 10million richer because of those choices so I'd say her judgment was pretty good. If she'd stayed with Excalibur (maybe to no fault of their own)we may not have gotten the gold that she brought home. Excalibur is a business and it's up to them to make sure they got paid. I would have stiffed them too if I had shot at 10 mil of that's what it took. Make sure I pay you along with a few body parts or go after the gold and the ten mil???? That's a no-brainer! You'd be gettin' stiffed for sure. At least she was nice about it, I would even done that much.
