Shawn Johnson Pitching and Racing

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Has Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson found new sports? Based on the pictures below you might just think so, but really Shawn is just having fun and doing the celebrity thing!

On Wednesday, June 3 she threw the first pitch at the Dodgers – Diamondback MLB game.

And May 23 she was trying out the race car driver thing at the Coca-Cola 600.

I don’t know about you, but I seriously doubt we’ll see Shawn making a comeback in the gym anytime soon. She seems to be cashing in on her success and having a great time doing it!

Dakota Fanning Cheerleader The June 2009 issue of American Cheerleader (on newsstands now) features a full interview with teen celebrity turned girl next door/high school cheerleader, Dakota Fanning. Excerpts of the interview can be found online at American Cheerleader. In the interview, Dakota talks about what she likes most about cheerleading – namely stunting:

AC: What do you like most about cheer?
Dakota: I love stunting! I’m a flyer and I just love that. Also, you make so many friends in cheerleading. Sometimes it’s a long way to games, and we have to travel for hours on a bus, and you kind of bond with your teammates. I think that’s really nice.

AC: What is it about stunting that you love so much?
Dakota: You know it really came naturally to me when I first started doing it. It’s probably my most favorite thing about cheerleading—I’m the one who’s always like, ‘OK, let’s stunt now.’ I really love doing toe touch Baskets.

As usual the debate as to whether cheerleading is a sport continues, but as far as Dakota is concerned, cheerleading is a sport – and one she really enjoys.

shawn johnson and mark ballas win dwts2009

Olympic Gymnast Shawn Johnson was crowned winner of Dancing with the Stars season 8 after performing a very confident Cha Cha with partner Mark Ballas.

After seeing Shawn’s very first dance at the beginning of the season I was skeptical that she would have the ability to win. However, Shawn worked as hard in dance training as she has all her gymnastics years and it pays off. She overcame her hesitations on body movement and got into to every character she had to play. She took her gymnastics background and made it work for her in a completely new way.

Congratulations Shawn! We can’t wait to see where you take your talents next.
