Olympic all-around champion gymnast Gabby Douglas pushed back her competitive return until 2015, scrapping a plan to compete at the P&G Championships later this month.
Douglas, who hasn’t competed since winning two gold medals in London two years ago, has also joined a new gym in Ohio.
Images on social media last week showed Douglas working out at Buckeye Gymnastics.
Douglas, 18, left the coach that guided her to the Olympics, Liang Chow, in Iowa for the second time last month. They had reunited in April after she spent eight months in California.
“I wasn’t looking to leave Iowa, but I was placed in a position where I had to make a decision to find another coach,” Douglas said, according to The Associated Press. “Even though I have had to make that change, I’m committed to working hard to be a part of the 2016 Rio Olympic Team.”
When she was with Chow, Douglas said she planned on competing at the P&G Championships, which are in three weeks in Pittsburgh.
