The honors keep rolling in for Gabby Douglas. The latest might be the biggest (in size) yet.

Douglas won the Teen Choice Award as the top female athlete Sunday night and with it the customary surfboard trophy.

The two-time 2012 Olympic champion gymnast won the Young Stars Award and Sportswoman of the Year at the BET Awards last month. She was also nominated for ESPYs for Best Female Athlete and, with the Fierce Five, Best Team.

Douglas won the AP’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2012 and made a recent cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids. She plans on returning to competition next year, meaning she will not be defending her title at the USA Gymnastics National Championships in Hartford, Conn., this week.
