Shawn Johnson Honors Courtney Kupets

Shawn Johnson Honors Courtney Kupets

Blue beauty Shawn Johnson snaps a pic with fellow gymnast Courtney Kupets at the 2009 Annual Salute To Women In Sports Awards at The Waldorf-Astoria in NYC on Tuesday evening (October 13).

The 17-year-old athlete honored Courtney as Sportswoman of the Year for Individual Sports. After missing the 2008 post-season with an Achilles’ injury, Courtney returned to lead Georgia to its fifth straight NCAA title. The senior became the first gymnast to win a national title in the all-around, bars, beam and floor competition in the same year.

Shawn recently caught up with US Weekly to chat about her Everest moment. Check out the video at

FYI: Shawn is wearing a crossover ruffle dress by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent.
