*We all know Olympic champion Gabby Douglas is a big deal.
Well, her hometown, Virginia Beach, Virginia wants to show the world just how big a deal Miss Douglas is with a mural of her.
And what does the gold-medal-winning gymnast have to say about it?
“WOW!!! This is amazing!! (hashtag)so honored,” Douglas tweeted Friday from the Olympics in London, where the 16-year-old gymnast won two gold medals at the Summer Games.
The mural shows Douglas holding a gold medal with an American flag backdrop. It says “Way to go Gabby.”
According to reports, brothers Todd and Eric Lindbergh (of T.A.L.E.N.T. Murals) spent four days painting the 9-by-30 foot mural on the outside wall of a sports bar.
Todd Lindbergh says the idea for the mural came when he found out that Douglas was from Virginia Beach while watching her on TV at a medals ceremony.
