Born – January 19, 1992
Des Moines, Iowa, U.S.
Began studying gymnastics at age 3, competed in the Junior Olympics in 2004, won a silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.
Won “Dancing With the Stars” in 2009 … the same year, an obsessed fan of hers was arrested outside the set while in possession of guns, duct tape, zip ties and love letters. Aw, love letters. That's sweet.
Released a book in 2008 called "Shawn Johnson: Olympic Champion: Stories Behind the Smile," which won an award for having the world's longest title. Just kidding, but what if there really was such a thing? Can you imagine??
Was one of only two female athletes on AOL's “100 Most Searched Females on the Internet” for 2009. Guess there's a lot of guys out there who enjoy gymnastics.
