Gabby Douglas Could Rake in $90 Million After Making History
Gabby Douglas is definitely a hot topic among Americans and others around the world today. The 16 year old gymnast from Virginia Beach, Virginia has made history by becoming the first African-American Olympic all-around champion and first American woman to win gold in both the team and individual all-around finals.
Gabby has become an inspiration to young women everywhere, and could soon be making a pretty penny from all of her dedication and hard work. According to the New York Post, experts predict that this new gold medalist could make up to $90 million in the next ten years.
The Post reports:
“The 16-year-old sweetheart of the Summer Olympics can actually earn her own weight in gold—more than $2.4 million each time she inks an endorsement deal, experts say.
The gymnast, who already has a deal with Procter & Gamble, could land as many as 30 deals over the next decade, said several industry sources.
“She’s the new superstar in sports marketing because she’s got the exact message and image that companies want to be associated with,” said Kevin Adler, president of EngageMarketing, a sports marketing firm for Fortune 500 companies.”
Gabby deserves all of the amazing perks she has coming to her. Congratulations Ms. Douglas!
