Shawn Johnson (USA)

According to a very recent twitter posting, 2008 Olympic All-Around Silver Medallist and Balance Beam Champion Shawn Johnson (West Des Moines, Iowa / Chow’s) is progressing in her comeback.

@ShawneyJ: OH & for all of u gymnastics fans out there… Progressing in training! Caught my yaeger & gienger today! Working on some crazy NEW things!

This is exciting news for Shawn Johnson fans and gymnastics fans in general. Catching a Jaeger and a Geinger is a big step in her comeback.

As for new things, I wonder what she will show us.

My hopes:

  • tucked double-double makes it’s way back into her Floor Exercise routine
  • awesome, new choreography on Floor Exercise that showcases her Dancing With The Stars dance ability
  • increased difficulty on Uneven Bars
