Motivational and Inspiring

Shannon Miller remains the Most Decorated Gymnast in American History with 7 Olympic medals! 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! (Individual (2006) and Team (2008).

She has won an astounding 59 International and 49 National competition medals. Over half of these have been gold. She is the first US gymnast to win 2 World All-Around Titles and she is the first American female to medal in the individual all-around of a non-boycotted Olympics. 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.

After retiring from Olympic competition, Shannon received her undergraduate degrees in marketing and entrepreneurship from the University of Houston and her law degree from Boston College. She then moved from Olympic athlete to advocate for the health and wellness of women and children.

Shannon launched her company Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness for Women which empowers women to make their health a priority through programs, education, and awareness.

In 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. Now cancer free, Shannon continues to be a strong advocate for awareness and early detection. Shannon’s new book It’s Not About Perfect: Competing for My Country, Fighting for My Life, published April 21, 2015!

As an athlete, she learned critical lessons with regard to focus, dedication, goal setting, leadership, and overcoming obstacles. She put those lessons to the test during her cancer battle. Her words will inspire you to dream big, focus on what matters, and take specific steps to achieve success!
