|Cuddly Shawn Johnson- scaring strapping male gymnasts everywhere!|
The British newspaper The Telegraph published a London 2012 Olympics Guide, presumably for people wo know nothing about gymnastics. My favorite part;
Um, has this person watched any gymnastics since 2008? Seen any Russian girls lately? Or the other US kids for that matter? Sure, they should be scared of the Chinese women, but even if SJ does claw her way back in, since when has she been a threat to Tweddle on bars, or a threat to Keatings or Smith for that mater (yes, for the very earnest person who was going to comment and correct me, I do know that is not what they meant)?!!! I love it when non-gymnastics people cover the sport. It's always entertaining!Three names to watch?Louis Smith, Daniel Keatings, and Beth Tweddle.Biggest international rivals?Comeback kid Shawn Johnson (USA), Chinese women’s team, Zhang Hongtao (China).
And shouldn't Louis and Smith be more worried about Kohei Uchimura than little old Shawn Johnson!!
