Shawn Johnson to compete in 2012


St. Paul, Minnesota -- Apparently an Olympic gold and two silver's aren't enough for Shawn Johnson.  After giving it some the thought, the West Des Moines gymnast decided she's ready to shoot for more gold in 2012.

Johnson's currently on a nationwide tour with many of her gymnastics teammates and counterparts from the men's team, and it's fueled her competition bug.  Now, she plans to be ready to go for the London Olympics 4 years from now.

"Not a day goes by that I don't think about it. You're always questioning whether to continue or not and I've got it set stone that I want to keep going. I mean gymnastics is my life and I can't see myself finishing yet. I'd love to go for 2012."

Johnson's Tour of Gymnastics Superstars makes a stop at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines this Friday.
