Seacrest interviews Hawkins during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Gabby Douglas’s drive and determination.
It’s amazing! I look at what they do, just for instance, in the gym. She will probably crank out about 20 beam routines a day. It’s just phenomenal the work ethic that all the girls have at this level. She’s always been really intense. I remember her as a little girl just trying to learn new skills on her own and she would just keep working at it and keep working at it. So now when I see her doing all her routines at the gym, it doesn’t really surprise me anymore, just because I remember how dedicated she was at seven and eight years old.
