Olympic Shout Out #10


Dear Shawn,

You fought hard, always with a smile on your face. I have to say, sometimes I didn't always understand you. You are a great gymnast and you showed a lot of poise every time you did not win a gold medal. You competed in so many events and you were inched out so many times! Other athletes might have gone a little insane at the injustice, but you kept playing your chances. Then, at the last opportunity, you struck GOLD! That's gotta feel good. I know that you gymnasts don't usually have a long tenure on the olympic team, but think about coming back for London. You'll only be 20. And I KNOW you want a shot at the Olympic All-Around Gold. Just think about it...

Best,
Owen
