Iowa’s second golden girl is back in the limelight.

Gabby Douglas appeared on the Today Show Monday morning to talk about her new book, Raising The Bar.

Gabby says it’s a fun book that resembles a scrapbook with pictures and quotes. In it the gymnast also writes about Iowa and staying with her host family.

Gabby trains with Liang Chow in West Des Moines. She says she’ll get back to the gym very soon to start training for the 2016 Olympics, but she is also excited to experience an Iowa tradition this summer.  “It’s funny because after the Olympics I really wanted to go to the state fair, but I couldn’t because I went straight to media, so I was like awe maybe next year,” she said.

Gabby has now authored two books.
