Shawn Johnson Hits the Books at Vanderbilt
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

U.S. Olympic star Shawn Johnson has moved to Tennessee for college.

Retired world and Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson (U.S.) will be a full-time freshman next fall, she told NBC Olympics in an interview.

The 2007 world all-around champion and 2008 Olympic champion on balance beam said she has moved to Nashville and enrolled at Vanderbilt University, where she plans to study sports psychology and dietetics. "I want to turn it around in the sport," Johnson said. "I want to give back to gymnastics."

Johnson followed her 2008 Olympic success by winning ABC's hit show "Dancing with the Stars." She returned to competition in 2011, but a knee injury led to her retirement before the 2012 Olympic Games.
