Share/Save/Bookmark

DES MOINES, Iowa — Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas is reuniting with the coach who helped her win gold in 2012.

Gymnastics coach Liang Chow told the Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/1e4RFWl ) on Sunday that the 2012 Olympic all-around gymnastics champion will return to train at his gym in West Des Moines, Iowa.

Douglas left Chow last August to live with her family in Los Angeles, raising questions about her ability to return to the Olympics in 2016.

Chow says he is excited to work with Douglas again, but she faces a number of hurdles before returning to competition.

Douglas won gold in the all-around and team competitions at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
