San_Diego-20120428-00152.jpg

Competitions are taking place across the country for U.S. Olympic hopefuls looking to earn berths in the 2012 Summer Games in London. Charity talks with Des Moines' Shawn Johnson about her preparation after a lay-off and knee injury sustained in a ski accident and the four medals she took home after the 2008 Olympics. Charity also speaks with Lauren Pfeiffer, a field hockey player on the US National Team; Miranda Leek, an archer currently leading the field in women's archery; and Matt Stutzman of Fairfield. Stutzman has qualified for the 2012 Paralympics Games as an archer.
