Between Shawn Johnson and Allison Stokke, the U.S. is missing out on having some of our hottest athletes on the Olympic stage. Stokke didn’t qualify, but Shawn Johnson simply can’t compete after a skiing accident forced her into early retirement. As much as we’ll miss seeing her compete, if she continues to do photo shoots like this one we’ll be A-OK. She is killing it in this Nike shoot, showing that even with her knee not being 100% she can still bring the heat.
When she announced her retirement about three weeks ago, the gymnastics world lost a great one. Take a look at this gallery and you’ll realize just how much better the gymnastics competition would have been with this babe in it.
