Mattel skipped the flowers for Gabby Douglas, and instead celebrated the Olympian’s success at the U.S. gymnastics team’s trials this weekend with a Barbie of her likeness. The 2012 champion made the team, thankfully, despite some foibles through the trials and will be heading to Rio in August.

To honor Douglas’ groundbreaking efforts, after she became the first woman of color to win the individual all-around competition at the 2012, Mattel unveiled a “Shero” Barbie in her honor Monday. The line — which includes the likenesses of Misty Copeland, Ava DuVernay, Emmy Rossum, Eva Chen, Trisha Yearwood and Zendaya — focuses on female heroes who inspire girls by breaking boundaries.
