Gabby Douglas leaves Chow again

WEST DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Olympic champion Gabby Douglas is searching for a new coach after leaving Iowa-based coach Liang Chow following their brief stint back together.

Douglas, the all-around champion at the 2012 Olympics, went back to Chow's gym in Des Moines in April, but decided to part ways again after a reunion that lasted less than three months.

Last month, the 18-year-old said she hoped to compete in the all-around at this year's nationals, set for Aug. 21-24.

She originally left Chow last August, sparking questions about whether she would try for a repeat Olympic title. Going back into the gym with Chow was a first step, but now her future seems less certain.

No woman has repeated as all-around Olympic champion since 1968.
