Shawn Johnson Fan Arrested Breaking Into Studio

After the Beijing Olympics, 17-year-old Shawn Johnson suddenly has one of the world’s most recognizable faces.

They might be other members of the Olympic gymnastics team for all I know: I defy anyone to remember any member of the team besides those two and Shawn Johnson. All I know is that in the All-Around Hotness race, Sacramone has crushed Liukin in the Bikini portion, a fact not even Bela Karolyi can argue.
