Gymnast Gabby Douglas is getting ready to go for the gold again in Rio this summer, and she's giving fans a glimpse inside her journey as the Olympics approach in a new docu-series Douglas Family Gold.

While the series doesn't debut on Oxygen until May 25, People released a first look at the series Wednesday, posting the entire first episode of the show on its Facebook page. As the name of the series suggests, the episode—and the show in general—also reveals the 20-year-old athlete's relationship with her family, which includes her momager, Natalie Hawkins, and three siblings, Arielle Hawkins, Joy Douglas, and Jonathan Douglas.

"In 2012 I won the all-around gold medal at the Olympics in London. It was a dream come true," Douglas says in the episode. "Now, I want to do the impossible. I want more Olympic gold." When she is asked, "Do you think you showed everyone everything you had in London?," Douglas replies, "I have more."

There's no doubt Douglas is a fearless competitor and an extraordinary gymnast—which can be seen on the show—but, she credits her family for keeping her head high and her confidence soaring when she hits the floor to compete. "[My mom] told me that it's the times that I have fallen and gotten back up that are the moments that inspire her the most," Douglas told People. "She always tells me that no matter what the outcome is, I am a champion in her eyes."

As for her siblings, she added, "They have sacrificed so much for my career. They encourage me, give me great advice and make me laugh!" She continued, "When I fall, it's my family that picks me up."

Douglas Family Gold premieres May 25 at 10 p.m. ET on Oxygen.
