She is also a member of the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame, International Sports Hall of Fame and the Women’s International Hall of Fame. With over a hundred international and national medals, Shannon has certainly earned her title as the most decorated gymnast in United States history and cemented her legacy as one of the best to ever compete.

She has been interviewed on a slew of television shows and has graced the pages of publications such as Sports Illustrated, Glamour, Fitness, Vogue and Women’s Day.

She still finds time to travel to gymnastics gyms around the country and inspire young gymnasts. In 2015, Miller published her autobiography It’s Not About Perfect with St. Martin’s Press.
