WaybackWednesday: Shannon Miller makes her Olympic debut
Getting to the Olympics is hard work. Athletes can train for years only to come up short. Some never even get close.
That's why Shannon Miller's July 26, 1992 Olympic debut was such a big deal. Miller didn't leave the Barcelona games with a gold medal, but she did take home two silvers and three bronzes. Not bad for a 15-year-old.
Four years later Miller would strike gold in Atlanta twice. She came home to a parade in Edmond that August.
Miller, along with the rest of the women's team, dubbed "The Magnificent Seven," ended up on the cover of Wheaties boxes in late 1996.
Today, Miller is 40, a mother and health and wellness advocate through her website and foundation that aims to fight childhood obesity. She also survived a battle with ovarian cancer in 2011.
