Like many others, McKayla Maroney is sharing her happiness for the change over of the Commander of Chief. The 2012 Olympic Gold medalist took to social media with a pair of photos.
“Never too late for a fresh start ✨,” Maroney writes. While there’s nothing patriotic about the photo, the former gymnast stares directly at the camera with a slight smile. No teeth of course, because that seems to be Maroney’s signature facial expression.
McKayla Maroney has more than one million followers, and the photos seemed to be well received. It does have over 95-thousand likes and almost one-thousand comments. She obviously feels the love for herself, since she mostly only posts pictures of herself.
McKayla Maroney: What is She Doing Now?
McKayla Maroney was one of the most famous athletes in 2012. Her spot on the American Olympic Gymnast team, was nicknamed the “Fierce Five.” Maroney’s pure athleticism and acrobatic strength scored her a gold medal in the team and an individual silver medal in the vault event.
However, it wasn’t her medaling that Maroney is remembered for. It’s the face of “disgust” that Maroney made on the podium after she received the silver. The gymnast has gone on record saying that she didn’t realize she was making the face. It’s something that she’s done since she was young.
“I remember doing the face for literally two seconds,” Maroney told Inside Gymnastics. “Like, if you watch the video, it’s two seconds. And I remember thinking, did I just make a face? Because it’s natural. I do it all the time. I have pictures of me when I’m little doing it.”
This was supposed to be a time when she was celebrating with her teammates, but her fame took a turn for the dark side. After stepping away from the spotlight and retiring from gymnastics, she then returned to plead her case against the now-convicted U.S. Olympic team doctor.
Additionally, Maroney has dipped a toe into acting. However, her true passion is music. She teased a musical career for several years now. Currently, Maroney has three singles.
