Liang Chow was on China’s national gymnastics team for more than decade, and was also the personal coach of Shawn Johnson, a gold medalist at the Beijing Olympics. After he moved to the US in 1990, he coached the men’s and women’s gymnastics teams at the University of Iowa. He now has his own training facility, the Chow’s Gymnastics and Dance Institute, in Des Moines, Iowa. Chow, originally from Beijing, became an American in 2002.

I'm proud to be an American.

He should be in the picture with Gabby on her Corn Flakes box!
