Shannon Miller is the Most Decorated American Gymnast, male or female, in history. She is the only US gymnast to win two World All-Around Titles. Her tally of five medals (2 silver, 3 bronze) at the 1992 Olympics was the most medals won by a US athlete. At the 1996 Olympic Games, she led the “Magnificent Seven” to the US Women’s first ever Team Gold and for the first time for any American gymnast, she captured Gold on the Balance Beam.
After battling with her own weight and confidence after retiring from Olympic competition Shannon has made it her mission to help other women achieve a healthy and fit lifestyle.
In 2011, after a diagnosis of a Germ Cell Tumor, a type of ovarian cancer, she has become a passionate advocate for women to get their regular exams and screenings. Through her personal stories of trial and triumph Shannon shares with her audience the idea of “balance” in our efforts to be successful and live a healthy and fit lifestyle. She brings her never back down attitude to her professional life as well as her health.
