INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Reigning Olympic champion Gabby Douglas' comeback is picking up speed.

Next stop? Texas.

Douglas will work out in front of U.S. women's gymnastics team coordinator Martha Karolyi next week, a major step toward her return to elite competition. The 18-year-old hasn't competed since winning a pair of gold medals, including the all-around title, at the 2012 London Olympics.

Douglas recently reunited with coach Liang Chow in Iowa after taking a seven-month break to spend time with her family in Southern California.

There's still no timetable for when she'll be ready for competition. It's nearly three months to nationals in Pittsburgh in late August, with the world championships in China in early October. Douglas has said she hopes to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
