We've got a ringer! Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson has been named TODAY.com's special correspondent covering the Olympics.
The gymnast will join Matt, Savannah, Al, Natalie, Meredith, Ryan Seacrest and a slew of producers in London giving readers behind-the-scenes access to the athletes and life at the Games.
"Participating in the Olympics holds such special memories for me," Shawn said. "TODAY has a huge online audience, and I can't wait to share the Olympic experience from an athlete’s point of view with all of them."
Shawn won one gold and three silver medals in Beijing's 2008 Games.
She showed off her fancy footwork a year later, picking up the "Dancing with the Stars” Mirror Ball Trophy. Shawn retired from gymnastics in June after injuring her knee.
"Shawn is uniquely positioned to explain what it’s like to perform on the biggest stage in the world," said TODAY.com general manager Jen Brown. "We’re thrilled to have Shawn join us in London."
