"In the Loop: Gymnastics 'it girl' Johnson is also a popular cover girl"
West Des Moines' Shawn Johnson was called the "it girl" of gymnastics by NBC announcers when she won the American Cup in March in Jacksonville, Fla. They must have been right.
Johnson, 15, who also won the all-around at a meet in Northern Ireland last month, graces the most recent cover of International Gymnast magazine and also is the cover girl for USA Gymnastics Magazine. Her next competition will be at the Pan American Games in July in Brazil.[/quote]
