Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin To Perform in San Diego


Congratulations to Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson for winning the Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Gold and Silver Medals!

If you missed it, you can watch the full NBC coverage online as it follows the USA, China, and Russia through the four floor rotations. Even though you know the outcome, watching it is still intense as you can feel the gymnasts’ emotions when the TV cameras follow their every move – Nastia Liukin frequently closing her eyes to gather her focus while Shawn Johnson is off to the side going through the motions of her next routine as she waits for her turn. Early on, your competitive juices kick in as it appears the Chinese gymnasts are given scores higher than their performances seem to have warranted while the U.S. gymnasts were receiving deductions for what appeared to be flawless execution.

As the Americans eke out their one-two victory on the final rotation, the floor exercise, NBC TV cameras caught the famous Olympic Coach to Mary Lou Retton and Nadia Comaneci react wildly to their inspiration-lifting performances. (See Bela Karolyi’s Olympic reaction to the U.S. Gold Medal Victory.)

Now, you can be inspired by Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson in person! They are coming to San Diego on Sunday, September 14th. They will be performing at the Sports Arena with other famous gymnasts to help raise awareness for cancers that affect women. The event is being set-up by Frosted Pink with a Twist and will be aired on ABC October 12th.
