Shannon Miller

Seven-time Olympic Medalist in Gymnastics


Shannon Miller has won an astonishing 59 international and 49 national competition medals. Over half of these have been gold. In 1993-94, Shannon became the first US gymnast ever to win back-to-back world all-around titles, and she is the first American woman to win an individual all-around medal at a non-boycotted Olympic Games.

Her tally of five medals (two silver, three bronze) at the '92 Olympics was the most by a US athlete in any sport. At the '96 Games, she led the "Magnificent Seven" to the first-ever US women's team gold and became the first American gymnast to win gold on the balance beam. She is the first American gymnast to win an individual gold medal at a fully-attended Summer Games and cemented her place as the most accomplished gymnast, male or female, in U.S. Olympic history.

Shannon launched her company devoted to helping women make their health a priority in July, 2010. In January of 2011, Shannon was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. She had the baseball sized tumor removed successfully and followed up with an aggressive chemotherapy regimen. Shannon has remained open and public about her diagnosis and treatment and continues to empower women to make their health a priority. Shannon is currently cancer-free and continues to be a strong advocate for early detection.

Shannon’s book, It’s Not About Perfect: Competing for My Country and Fighting for My Life, is her inspirational memoir written to encourage and empower others to break through and overcome their own personal challenges.


She is the only American female athlete in any sport, to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame twice, once as an individual (2006) and another time in the team category (2008).
