Shannon Miller was in Shrewsbury on Jan. 17.

Olympian Shannon Miller visited the Gymnastics Learning Center in Shrewsbury last week as part of a tour to help promote an major gymnastics event in Worcester. 

Miller, 35, won five medals at the 1992 Olympics, and won the gold on the balance beam in 1996. An ovarian cancer survivor, she also oversees a foundation dedicated to fighting childhood obesity.

From 2002 to 2007, Miller lived in Grafton while earning a law degree from Boston College, the Grafton Daily Voice reported.
