Now you may not immediately recognize the name Shawn Johnson and all that really means is you don’t really follow gymnastics or the Olympics. In 2008, Johnson took home the gold medal for her artistic work on the balance beam and in 2009, she joined as a competitor on Dancing with the Stars. By 2012, the former Des Moines starlet announced her retirement from gymnastics, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still follow her. On December 17th, 2015, Shawn turned to YouTube to remain engaged with her fans. The channel, which follows Shawn’s life after gymnastics, reached 100,000 subscribers less than 4 months after her introductory video.
