Shawn Johnson Wins Pan Am Gold
High School sophomore Shawn Johnson just did something really cool on her summer vacation – she won both All Around and Team Gold at the 2007 Pan American Games in Brazil – and she still has the opportunity to win more in event finals. USA team mates Rebecca Bross and Ivana Hong helped make it a USA medals sweep earning the silver and bronze medals respectively.
In other Pan Am news, the US, Cuba and Brazil women’s volleyball teams have qualified to the semi final round. Unfortunately the US women’s beach volleyball duo was defeated by the two-time World Champion Brazilian team.
