Olympic Gymnast Gabby Douglas at Lake Owen

July 5, 2012 Updated Jul 5, 2012 at 10:07 PM CDT

Cable, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- 16-year-old gymnast Gabby Douglas was a special guest this week at the Lake Owen Gymnastics Camp, less than a week after punching her ticket to the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.

Douglas edged second-place finisher Jordyn Wieber by less than a point to win the all-around competition, securing the only guaranteed spot on the United States Olympic team.

The Lake Owen camp has been providing campers with gymnastics instruction for the past 27 years, and several Olympians before Douglas have been invited as instructors and visitors.

Below are listed some of the very famous names in gymnastics to have visited the camp, which you can read more about at the Lake Owen Camp web site.
