Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson Loses 25 Pounds

4 years ago

Everyone has their struggles with weight, but imagine being an Olympic gold and silver medalist and being in the spot light. Your fitness and weight would always be under scrutiny because you are famous for your atheletic ability. Shawn Johnson had gained and lost 25 lbs during the 3 years she was on break from international competition. She will be attempting a comeback in London. "She said her fluctuating weight led to "hurtful" comments in the tabloids." "That whole process kind of broke me down and taught me something," she said, according to USA Today. "People put too much emphasis on looks." She did tear her ACL during a skiing accident in 2010 that lead to some weight gain. She was quite horrified about some of the comments she saw online when she searched for her name. She won`t make the Olympic team for sure, but is thankful for the opportunity to compete during the Olympic trials.

Have you ever googled your name?
Did anything come up?
Have you ever suffered an injury that lead to weight gain?
I broke my leg doing gymnastics when I was younger and was hobbling around on crutches for 3 months but I don`t remember gaining any weight. Then again I was about 13/14 or so, so I don`t think I really paid any attention lol.
