Shawn Johnson: A Pride of Gymnastics

Shawn Johnson is a name widely known in the world of gymnastics. She is one of the leading American gymnasts in history because of her remarkable achievements. She was born in Des Moine, Iowa on January 19, 1992. She is the single child of a couple named Doug and Teri Johnson. Johnson started learning gymnastics at the early age of three, which enabled her to master her craft at a very young age.

Junior Competitions: Shawn Johnson started competing in 2004 in the Junior Olympics National Championships, ranking first on beam, second on floor, and fourth in the all-around. Her coach, Chow, knew she has the talent to be on the national team so he sent a video tape of Johnson to Marta Karolyi, the person who works as a coordinator for the national team. That was the start of Johnson's venture on National Training Camps. In 2005, Johnson competed and got the third place in rankings in the U.S Classic. But when she competed in the first day U.S National Championships it was an unfortunate day for her when she fell from the beam. She improved herself learning several tricks and in 2006, with the highest score than every other elite contestant, Johnson won the U.S Junior National All-Around Championship.

Senior Competitions: In year 2007, Shawn Johnson became a senior and she again learned new skills that she used when she competed and won the all-around over Natasha Kelley in the 2007 Tyson American Cup. And in the same year, Johnson participated in the Pan-American games and won the silver medal on floor along with the team title, the balance beam title, the uneven bars and the all-around title. She is also one of the few who got selected to be the representative of the United States together with Shayla Worley, Alicia Sacramone, Nastia liukin, Samantha Peszek and Ivana Hong in the 2007 World Artistic Gymnastics Championship.

Awards and Accomplishments: The Associated Press Athlete of the Year poll took place in 2008 and Shawn Johnson took the fifth place in the rankings. Johnson is also one of the only two female athletes that appeared on AOL's most searched females on the Internet in 2009. In 2009, Johnson received multiple awards from different award-giving bodies including the Best Female U.S Olympian. She also received the prestigious AAU James E. Sullivan Award on April 15, 2009. And in the same year Johnson was named as America's Most-Liked Sports Figure by Forbes magazine. Harris Interactive has ranked Shawn Johnson seventh place in the rankings in the America's Favorite Female Sports Stars in 2010.
