Iowa floods interrupts Shawn Johnson’s Olympic training

The floods in Iowa have damaged the gym where Olympic hopeful Shawn Johnson was training. The gym was evacuated and equipment moved to higher ground, but the training floor was badly damaged and will likely need to be replaced.

The Olympic trials will start next week on June 19th in Philadelphia. Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin automatically qualify for the Beijing team, but four more members will be named.
