Shawn Johnson interview — with hints of 2012?
Posted November 18, 2008on:
I have a great fondness for Shawn Johnson, and I’ve got to say, she’s grown up quite a bit since her first interviews. This is an interview she did with WHO radio in Iowa on November 14th.
Of course, most importantly, with regard to training for 2012:
As of right now, I would love to be there. There’s a lot of training involved, especially since the Tour we’ve taken about two months kind of off, it’s kind of relaxing and having fun. But I don’t know, there’s something in me that still wants to compete, and if I can be there in 2012 I will be.
With respect to 2009, she said that if she is ready for it, she’ll compete. But she also mentioned “other opportunities that arise.” Here’s hoping to see her by Nationals and Worlds.
With regards to school (always a big question for me), she says she will go from January through the summer to catch up. And she’ll be going back to her high school. I love to hear her saying that she loves school and can’t wait to go back.
