Shawn Johnson won gold today in the balance beam, but in her home state of Iowa she received a perhaps tastier honor. The Iowa State Fair displayed her likeness carved in butter. The adorable and awesome Johnson now joins such luminaries as Elvis, John Wayne, and Harry Potter in the State Fair's pantheon of butter honorees. You can watch a slideshow of Butter Shawn's creation here, or check out more photos of the finished gymnast — and a butter American flag — after the jump.
