We caught up with Shannon to talk about her life after gymnastics.
Here is the video of one of her great moments and we start our interview by asking her
How do you stay involved with the sport of gymnastics today?
I love promoting the sport of gymnastics. Whether it’s helping USA Gymnastics promote a specific competition, the sport in general, or helping facilitate Ambassador training for Olympic Hopefuls with the USOC it is always nice to stay involved. I also take my son (2 ½) to a parent and tot class each week to watch him climb, jump, and run. I know the benefits of physical activity for children and want him to love being active no matter what sport or activity he eventually chooses.
What gymnastics skills can you still do?
Well, I haven’t done a lot of gymnastics lately. My last competition was about 12 years ago and my last tour in 2008 (after many years off). I can do a handstand and a cartwheel but typically when I’m in a gym, I’m busy chasing my son.
I did do a cartwheel on the beam, the first in four years, about a month ago while filming a social media campaign for Yoplait Smoothie. It was so great to be up there again. The balance beam is my own little world where I’m comfortable and in charge.
What was the highest point in your gymnastics career? Was there a low point?
Where do you think you would be today if you never became a gymnast? How has gymnastics sculpted your life?
That’s a big question. I really don’t know. Gymnastics gave me confidence and self-esteem that I didn’t naturally possess. I was able to travel the world and meet new people. It wasn’t just a sport for me, it taught me life lessons. It’s difficult to imagine my life without the influence of gymnastics and the people I’ve met through the sport.
Do you keep in contact with your coaches and former teammates? Have you visited the Dynamo gym lately?
