Video description
During the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, two members of the 6-member U.S. women's gymnastics team sustained sidelining injuries mere hours before competition began. Gymnast Shawn Johnson - known for her can-do attitude and winning smile - stepped up to compete in every event, every day, in every competition. Physically exhausted and mentally resigned to the silver-medal streak she was on, Shawn was more surprised than anybody when they announced her Gold Medal in balance beam. Featuring Shawn's first-hand account and interviews with former training partner and 2012 Olympic Hopeful gymnast Gabrielle Douglas.
