A doll like no other! Baja Californian athlete, Alexa Moreno, gets her own Barbie

The gymnast is part of a new Barbie doll line that recognizes several athletes around the world

It makes us very proud! Athlete Alexa Moreno makes history by being the first Mexican athlete in getting her own Barbie, as she has become one of the greatest athletic references in our country thanks to her incredible gymnastics talent.

Moreno is part of the 9 high-performance athletes that were immortalized with their own Barbie doll, which also includes figures such as Venus Williams, Mary Fowler, and Christine Sinclair.

Through a statement, the senior vice president of Barbie and global doll director of Mattel, said that the goal of this collection, that is also celebrating the 65th anniversary of the iconic doll, is to recognize "the impact that sport has to boost self-confidence and ambition in the next generation."
