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.”
