Shawn Johnson East says it has been awhile since she has been in Des Moines due to COVID. She and her family reside in Nashville now, but she finally made a visit back home recently. She returned to the gym that she trained to become an Olympic Gold Medalist, Chow's Gymnastics and Dance in West Des Moines.
Her coach from the age of 5 had not met her two children, so it was a lot of fun watching her kids play in the gym where she trained. Her two year old daughter Drew took a liking to the trampoline, which is what Shawn says inspired her to take an interest in gymnastics!
Shawn captured the entire visit on video and shared with her social media followers.
