Shawn Johnson's Coca-Cola Car

Olympic Gold Medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson prepares to get into the Coca-Cola car on the track prior to practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 on Saturday (May 23) at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.

The 17-year-old Dancing with the Stars champ recently talked about her favorite performance of the season in an interview with the LA Times. “Well, of course the freestyle, by far, is my favorite. We just put so much effort into that and really just went crazy with it, and had so much fun. It was just our best costumes, our best performance, and all we did was go out there and have fun. But my other one was the paso. I loved that dance, I felt I really had a great time in that dance and showed everybody that I could do any type of dance,” she said.

Shawn also talked about the difference in being in the public eye because of DWTS and being in the Olympics. “It’s different, of course, just because it’s totally different experience and different audience,” she said. “I’m getting almost more attention from this than from the Olympics. It’s one of those things where it’s more in the public eye. It’s a TV show rather than a sport, and it’s sad to say, but the TV shows usually get more viewers than sports on a regular basis.”

I never got why Olympic Gold Medalists always turned to Dancing with the Has-Beens afterwards. They have more talent than that!

I love that she’s not stick thin and she proudly shows off her muscles. She works hard at what she does and I’m so glad she won Dancing With the Stars. While they have so much talent (as LolaSvelt said), I’m glad they can show how truly talented they are by succeeding in nearly anything they attempt…including dancing. :o)

Shawn represented her country on the world stage, while basically still a kid, and did it quite well. Then when she went on, Dancing With The Tards, had to do it with the knowledge that some nut bag was on his way to do a Bardo on her ass. Even after THAT, she still stops to take pictures and sign autographs for fans, never knowing if there’s a Bardo 2 lurkin’ about. Pretty gutsy stuff for such a youngin’. It’s hard to rip this chick.

congrats to this young lady who is very talented. Dancing is considered a sport as well and there is talk that the producers should not have athletes on the show. They do very well because they have an advantage.

Shawn is such an adorable little one that is was impossible not to pull for her on DWTS. I have never voted until the finale this season, but I voted my 5 online votes for Shawn in the finales.

The french guy had more dancing talent, but Cheryl put too much “sexy overdone” in his dances for me. He would have won with Julianne Hough or that new girl, Anna, who will be on next season.

Just because she was “thin”(she had to be feather thin to perform her job well) she should gain tons of weight to “LOOK” health. Let’s just be realistic, she is obviously over weight here. She was so cute. :(

I don’t think it’s fat y’all. Just athletic build. Some people build muscles rather quickly and much more, but for a gymnast, this isn’t unnatural. Check out her pictures pack when the Olympics was going on. Plus she’s already quite short, which makes her seem even more stocky–kind of like Hayden Panettierre.

People say the same thing about Serena. These are all just athletes and depends on what sport you do, you build up different muscles. No one will have broader shoulders than a swimmer.

It makes me sick that people are coming here and calling her fat. She is 17, an athlete, and very fit. What is wrong with people??

Holy ****, her legs look HUGE. I’m sure in person she isn’t fat, just a bit chubby. It’s probably because she’s so so short that ANY bit of weight makes her look BIG. Though, she definitely has gained some weight…last year she looked teeny in comparison to this.

I have to agree with this post =/ I looked at last year’s pics.

Well…there’s always a future for Shawn as a human cannonball in the circus.

—I’m no longer calling her Shawn

Her new name is—–” Volume” Johnson

I don’t think this girl should have won DWTS at all.
Her body threw me off every time because she is not built like a dancer.
Hello????
Does the world have a brain?
DWTS is so boring, anyway.
I barely could watch 20% of it.
That actor Gilles was fantastic and proved himself worthy over and over again. He got ripped off, for sure.
She’s an American hero, no doubt but the trophy went to the wrong person.

Cute as a button :D

She has put on weight since the Olympics.
