WHO TV-13 sports director Keith Murphy and Register sports online editor Todd Bailey covered an Olympic sendoff for Beijing-bound gymnast Shawn Johnson and track qualifier Lolo Jones at Hy-Vee Hall in downtown Des Moines.

You can view the hour-long event below. To start at the beginning of the ceremony, click the Olympic send-off clip in the "On-Demand" column on the right.

Johnson, of West Des Moines, is the gold-medal favorite in women’s gymnastics, while Jones — a Des Moines Roosevelt graduate — qualified by winning the 100-meter hurdles at the recent U.S. Olympic Trials.

Johnson also announced that she will participate in a gymnastics superstar tour that will make a stop at Wells Fargo Arena on Nov. 15.

Hour long send-off video below - very touching :D
