Gabby Douglas is keeping busy in her break from gymnastics this year. A day after winning yet another award, Douglas was set to appear on the Disney Channel show “Kickin’ It” on Monday night, according to TV Guide.

Douglas, 17, the double Olympic champion in London, plays a gymnastics coach on the show, her second appearance on a TV series since winning gold in London. She also guest starred on “The Vampire Diaries.”

Douglas will rejoin her Olympic teammates in Hartford, Conn., later this week at the USA Gymnastics National Championships. The Fierce Five is being inducted into the federation’s Hall of Fame on Friday.

Douglas is expected to return to competition in 2014.
