79th Annual AAU Sullivan Top Amateur Athlete Event: Honoring Shawn Johnson, Tyler Hansbrough, Nastia Liukin, Cynthia Barboza and Garrett Weber-GaleApril 16, 2009
I’m giving a speech tonight to the NY Amateur Sports Alliance at the NYAC and I was arriving early to set up when whom should I see walking down the hallways but my Olympic teammate Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson.(Now currently staring on dancing with the stars!)
I poked my head into the room and saw that it was a small press conference for an event tonight for the 79th Annual AAU Sullivan Awards Honoring Americas Top Amateur Athletes.
Tyler Hansbrough, Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, Cynthia Barboza and Garrett Weber-Gale are being honored…
Also met WFAN radion personality Ann Ligouri who was once on a fencing cruise with 6-time Fencing Olympian Peter Westbrook back in the day!
It never ceases to amaze me how many randomly great things happen in NYC!
