NEW YORK (AP) — Gabby Douglas is golden when it comes to online popularity, too.
NBC says the gymnastics gold medalist is the most clicked-upon athlete on its Olympics website. Through Sunday, her profile on the site had more than 18 million page views. That’s far above the second-ranked athlete, swimmer Michael Phelps, whose profile had just over 7 million page views.
NBC says four of the five most clicked-upon athletes were women gymnasts.
The Olympics event with the most live streams through NBC was the gold-medal-winning performance of the female gymnasts.
