OLYMPIC gold medal gymnast, Shawn Johnson, is back in the gym as she considers returning to competition and making a run at the 2012 Olympics in London.

Her father, Doug Johnson, told The Des Moines Register that she began training at her hometown gym, Chow’s Gymnastics in West Des Moines, about a week ago and was working out about every other day. He says no decision on the Olympics has been made. Doug Johnson says that Shawn wants to get back to the gym and back in shape.

Johnson won gold medal in the balance beam during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Since the Olympics, she won Dancing With the Stars, appeared on television shows and won the Sullivan Award, given to the country’s top amateur athlete.
