Does anyone know if Shawn Johnson retired after the Olympics???
She has not decided yet. She said she has to wait until all the media and all that stuff dies down a little, and then she will get back into the gym again for a few practices and just see wear her heart is.
Why would she need to find a new coach?
I say, she's had her moments of glory & fun, let's step down and open up the field for the up-&-comer's, who would like their chance to shine! I mean that for Nastia too. In the nicest way possible, does that makse sense? I love them both, so much. But there's just not that much room at the top, and I'd like to see whoever else is healthy, get their chance, you know?
In all fairness, some atheletes do get burnt out after many years of hard work. They stake it out until the goal is reached. Now that they are there, wanting to walk away is quite reasonable to me.These girls shouldn't be competing in gymnastics for the sake of getting famous, and then quitting when they do.

3) Shawn has been working with a personal trainer since DWTS to get back in shape and his going back to the gym with CHOW(IDK where you get this new coach thing because everything I have read includes Chow) in October to assess what she is able to do and her future abilities. She said in recent articles that she hopes to be competing again by next year, but she doesn't know how she will adjust.
I got my information from Shawn's mouth to my ears. Pretty sure it's accurate. Just so you know....
I am pretty sure your ears screwed up the information then. As I heard her say a week ago she was going back to the gym with Chow in October. She may have to switch coaches if she decides to continue with gymnatics as shes wants to live in California. As of now though, she is still with Chow.
