Not to take from her accomplishments, but how does her mother a Single black women afford years of a top knotch Coach and all the other expenses such a program incurs and be able to afford the Olympics which in and of itself is an incredible expense? Was Gabby chosen to be fast tracted on a government affirmative action funded program to bring a black to the forefront in Gymnastics and if so how may more are there? Just wondering.
