We played At Work Olympics this morning to win tickets to Mississippi Valley Mayhem's Roller Derby Bout this Saturday. I was a little worried it was too hard so I grabbed Front Desk Megan to try it at the station. She gets an A for effort and I'll probably find some tickets for her efforts anyway ;)

Shannon Miller: With seven Olympic and nine World Championship medals, Shannon Miller remains the most decorated gymnast, male or female, in US History.
Shannon was the 1993 and 1994 World All-Around Gymnastics Champion. At the 1996 Olympics , Shannon led the Magnificent Seven to the US Women’s first ever Team Gold and for the first time ever for an American Gymnast, she captured the gold medal on the Balance Beam.
Shannon is also the only female athlete to be inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame not once but twice, as an individual and for her team.
After retiring from competition, Shannon received her undergraduate degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from the University of Houston as well as her law degree from Boston College. She launched her company Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness, with a mission to help women make their health a priority through a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
In 2011, Shannon was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. She has remained open and public about her diagnosis and treatment.
Now cancer free, she continues to be a strong advocate for awareness and early detection. Shannon shares the lessons she learned as an elite athlete, young adult and her journey with cancer in her inspirational new book, It’s Not About Perfect: Competing for My Country and Fighting for My Life.
Shannon has an amazing story as an entrepreneur, mother and cancer survivor but she is likely best remembered for her amazing Olympic moments.
