Shawn Johnson is a member of the 2008 US Women’s Olympic team in Beijing, China. See photos, video and a biography of Shawn below.

Shawn Johnson made the US Gymnastic team and is a 2007 and 2008 US and World Champion in the All Around category. Her strengths include being able to perform well under pressure and hitting complicated routines every time.

Shawn Johnson was born on January 19, 1992 in Iowa. Her mother says she skipped crawling and went right to walking by nine months of age. She was a natural acrobat, as she learned how to climb out of her crib shortly thereafter.

Shawn began her gymnastics career at three years old in a recreational program. She loved it and continued practicing her skills until she could join a team. When she joined a team and performed almost flawlessly, her family knew she had exquisite talent and they may have a star on their hands.

Shawn’s junior career began in 2005 with a 10th place finish overall in the US National Championships. In 2006, she won the same competition. Her senior career began in 2007 where she was crowned National Champion for the floor routine, balance beam and all-around in 2007. She was also the World Champion for the floor routine and the All-Around category.

In 2008, her winning streak has continued and she won National Champion title for floor exercise and All-Around titles. She made the US Women’s Olympic team and will compete in Beijing, China for the gold medal.
