Gabby Douglas, the 2012 Olympic all-around champion, is back for her second Games. And she's in Rio with some big goals: She'd like to earn more Olympic gold and defend her title. Or, as she puts it, "I aim to do the impossible."

Women's Olympic gymnastics competition starts on Sunday, and Douglas has already put her Rio playlist together, complete with her song of the moment, "Not Backing Down" by Blanca. "My older sister Arielle came across this song recently," she says, "It's so motivational and so upbeat, and it gets me every time. I've been listening to it nonstop."
