SHANNON MILLER – OLYMPIAN
Shannon remains the Most Decorated Gymnast in American History. She is the only American to rank among the Top 10 All-Time gymnasts and is the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame – Twice! (as an Individual (2006) and as part of a Team (2008)).
She’s won an astounding 59 International and 49 National competition medals. Over half of these have been gold. Her tally of five medals (2 silver, 3 bronze) at the 1992 Olympics was the most medals won by a US athlete in any sport. At the ‘96 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. But there’s more, much more . . .
After retiring from Olympic competition, Shannon received her undergraduate degrees in marketing and entrepreneurship and her law degree from Boston College. She then moved from Olympic athlete to advocate for the health and wellness of women and children.
In 2010, she launched her company, Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness for Women. She continues to travel the country as a highly sought after motivational speaker and advocate for the health and wellness of women and children.
In January 2011, Shannon was diagnosed with a malignant germ cell tumor, a rare form of ovarian cancer. She had the baseball sized tumor removed successfully and followed up with 9 weeks of chemotherapy. She’s remained open and public about her diagnosis and treatment and continues to empower women to make their health a priority through the media. She’s currently cancer free and continues to be a strong advocate for early detection.
