As 2014 arrives, Gabby Douglas is celebrating her 18th birthday while her fellow gymnasts prepare for the upcoming American Cup.

On December 31, 2013, Gabby Douglas became a full-fledged adult after winning Olympic Gold medals over year ago.

2013 was quite the incredible year for Gabby Douglas. Not only did she cameo on "The Vampire Diaries," she became an award show regular by attending The Screen Actors' Guild Awards, Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards, BET Awards, ESPY Awards, and Teen Choice Awards.

Gabby Douglas still hopes to return to the Olympics in Rio in 2016, but as she gets back into training, her fellow female gymnasts are already gearing up for a new competitive season.

According to NBC, fellow Olympian Kyla Ross along with the 2013 world all-around champion Simone Biles are slated to compete at the 2014 American Cup in March.

Former winner of the American Cup includes fellow Fierce Five teammate Jordyn Wieber and Olympic all-around champion Nastia Liukin.

In addition to Kyla Ross and Simone Biles, male gymnast Sam Mikulak has been invited to compete at the 2014 American Cup, while a second U.S. man will be announced later.

Kyla Ross recently competed at the 2013 World Gymnastics Championship in Antwerp. She won silver on the balance beam, uneven bars, and the all-around competition.
