With each passing competition, it appears Gabby Douglas, 20, is well on her way to achieving an improbable feat: a return to the Olympics as the reining all-around champion.

Douglas won the all-around Saturday at the City of Jesolo Trophy competition in Jesolo, Italy -- her second win this month. Just two weeks ago, Gabby won the top title at the AT&T American Cup.
While many gymnasts begin to fade at Gabby's age, she's improving this Olympic year. Last year she placed fourth at the competition.

Aly Raisman who was Gabby's teammate at the London Olympics isn't doing so well, she struggled to a sixth-place finish.

Simone Biles, the three-time defending world and U.S. all-around champion, did not compete in Italy and is expected to start her competition season at the Pacific Rim Championships next month.
