Shawn Johnson :)

Gymnastics is a great exercise because it motivates your body. Shawn Johnson is one of the few gymnasts in the USA Women's gymnasts Olympics. She inspires me a lot because she is really awesome gymnast. Shawn has only one gold medal in her life! That really surprised me because I thought she is a really good gymnast. Shawn Johnson has retired from being a gymnast in 2008, because she had knee surgery. But she got a notice that she has been invited to be contestant on Dancing with the Stars! :)

Johnson's Early and Gymnast Years 


Shawn was born in Des Moines, Iowa, the only child of Doug and Teri Johnson. Shawn was born on January 19, 1992, so she is 20 years old right now. Shawn's parents enrolled her in a gymnastics class when she was only three years old! Her training in gymnastics was about 25 hours a week! Shawn started her Olympic dream in 2008 when she attended Summer Olympics. In January 2010, Johnson tore her ACL while skiing , she had reconstructive knee surgery the following month. In May 2010, Johnson announced her return to gymnastics training with goal of making 2012 U.S. Olympic team.
