Coach Chow Liang dampens the enthusiasm about Shawn Johnson‘s comeback a little bit in an interview for IG:
“Shawn still has her challenges ahead of her. And I think one of the bigger challenges is … her knee. At this point, we don’t have a clear picture of how much she handle yet. There’s more than double layouts. She can tumble straight. But the tour jete, turning, the little things, are still bugging her. She never had any injuries in gymnastics, which is putting her in a tougher situation right now.”
This doesn’t sound too good. Read the complete article on International Gymnast.
