Team USA gymnastics is on a mission at the London Olympics.
The Fab Five will try to win the first team gold medal for the United States since 1996. This year's team is full of talent and Eyewitness News was there as they practiced for the Games Thursday.
Seventeen-year-old Jordan Wieber is the defending all-around champion and is ready to stick a perfect landing at the games.
But there is another rising star to watch. Gabby Douglas is nicknamed "The Flying Squirrel." Watch the 16-year-old work and you'll see why.
"This experience has been, oh man, it's been awesome for me. I'm peaking at the right time. Just to actually be here in London is just a great opportunity for me to gain the experience and to be on the floor is just exciting," Douglas said.
Gabby's warm-up Thursday was nearly flawless, she makes it look so easy. She knows every young girl will be watching her every move.
"My message is to never quit, never give up and when you have little troubles here and there, just keep fighting and it will all pay off. I even had a hard time two years ago and I kept fighting and my coaches kept pushing me, so never give up and keep fighting and always believe," Douglas said.
With her engaging personality, million-dollar smile and incredible talent, Gabby has a chance to become America's next superstar.
"There is a little bit of pressure, but we have to learn to block it out and just do what we normally do in the gym, I mean, just train and come out here and compete like we do in the gym and if we do that, then we're spot on," Douglas said.
