The gymnastic competition is my favorite Olympic sport, but I am always struck by the tremendous pressure the athletes face at such a young age. Obviously she can handle the pressure of this competition, and though someone upthread said she 'only' (relative to other gymnasts) practices 4 hours a day, I'm quite sure that long and physically taxing practices are nothing new for her. IMO, this is one reason athletes do well on DWTS because the physical demands are tremendous.
Shawn has so much personality, and despite not being used to expressing emotion, I think it would difficult to watch her and not like her. I am rooting for her to do well in this competition - hopefully al the way to the finals.
Bring on Monday night!
