The Sore Losers Podcast with hosts Lunchbox, Eddie and Raymundo of The Bobby Bones Show has been on the rise since their start in fall of 2018. However, the trio finally booked their first celebrity special guest.
Shawn Johnson East stopped by the show. She is a 2008 Olympic balance beam gold medalist and team, all-around and floor exercise silver medalist. Shawn was enrolled in a gymnastics class at age three by her parents after they noticed her climbing cabinets and jumping off tables.
During her time on the podcast, Lunchbox tried to convince Shawn that gymnastics isn't a sport. Although, he never quite got that idea past her. Also during the podcast, Shawn shared where she keeps her Olympic medals and what it was like going to high school while she was in the Olympics.
Her story is interesting as growing up, nobody knew that she was a gymnast because she was quiet and a teacher's pet. She also notes that women gymnasts are usually young due to their brains not being mature enough to recognize how dangerous the sport truly is.
