US gymnast Shawn Johnson starts Olympic comeback

Shawn Johnson, an 18-year-old all-American Olympic heroine, is attempting an almost impossible comeback - to overcome a career-threatening injury and win gold at London 2012.

At the age of 16, she won a gymnastics gold in Beijing and has become one of America's biggest celebrities but her world was turned upside down following a potentially career-ending skiing injury.
She told the BBC's Claire Marshall how she must now shun the celebrity limelight and fight for her dream of more Olympic glory. All five General Sessions Court judges have recused themselves in the case in which Stacy Johnson, principal at East Lake Elementary School, is facing domestic assault charges.
The judges cited the fact that the charge is that she kicked her husband, County Justice Coordinator Shawn Johnson. Mr. Johnson was court administrator in General Sessions Court for five years.ion was taken against the principal by the county schools in relation to the Sept. 28 incident.
In the incident at the couple's home on Little Bend Road on Signal Mountain, Ms. Johnson allegedly kicked her husband in the right leg.
Mr. Johnson told an officer that he and his wife are going through a divorce and had been arguing about some custody issues.
