Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas is moving back to Iowa, eight months after she had left her training base in Des Moines for California.
Douglas, the first African-American to win Olympic all-around gold, in addition to the U.S.’ team title in London, will reunite with the coach who guided her to the success in 2012 — Liang Chow — according to USA Today.
Douglas, 18, originally left her family in Virginia at age 14 to live with a host family and train under Chow, who also coached 2008 Olympic champion Shawn Johnson. She rejoined her family in August in California and said in September that she hoped to compete for the first time since the 2012 Olympics at the 2014 U.S. Championships (which are this August).
A hint of Douglas leaving California was dropped on Saturday by the Instagram account of California-based gymnastics coach Dom Palange:

Vonn is next expected to hit Louisville for this weekend’s Kentucky Derby.

The Olympic flame is traversing Brazil by all sorts of means — in a pool, a hot air balloon and even via oxcart on Thursday.
The oxcart portion of the torch relay was captured on video by O Globo in Itaberai, about 170 miles west of the capital of Brasilia.
The flame arrived in Brazil on Tuesday and will conclude its journey in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 5, with the lighting of the cauldron at the Maracanã.
