Thumbs up Arguably the best female gymnast in the U.S. (maybe world) is from Iowa

No need to expect great things from Shawn Johnson. She's gonna deliver whether we ask for it or not.

I've found that gymnasts are pretty flexible. ;)

It really made me proud to see some of the bios they've done for her for various competitions. She is such a good role model!

My four year old son's first exposure to gymnastics was watching her on the uneven bars, "Mommy, I want to do that when I grow up!" You should have seen his face when I told him that she was from Iowa...it was one of those "Wow, dreams really can come true" moments.

The Pan Am Games (http://www.usoc.org/11831_52564.htm) started yesterday. I'm not sure how Shawn Johnson did yet.

I don't think you understand the degree of talent this girl has. She's gonna make Dan Gable, Zach Johnson, Cael Sanders, and Fred Hoiberg say, "now that's an athlete."
