Those of you into you gymnastics and are familiar with gymnastics on a world level, will know exactly who McKayla Maroney is, due to her achievements in the sport. Those of you who know nothing about gymnastics still might know who she is, due to the London 2012 Olympics.
McKayla Maroney went into the Olympics as the world champion at the women's vault and was one of the favourites for the event. Unfortunately for McKayla, she only managed to pick up the silver medal but she became an internet sensation, as she looked very disappointed on the podium for the medal ceremony.
This time out though, at the World Gymnastic Championships in Belgium, is was happier news for McKayla Maroney, as she managed to take home gold in the women's vault, retaining her world title. Following the success, McKayla revealed her delight.
Maroney explained, "It felt great (to be on the medals podium)," said Maroney, who won her first World vault title in 2011. “It’s been a long time since I competed on the World stage, and it felt very good to go out there today and do exactly what I needed to do.”
Let's hope she can continue her form in the build up to Rio 2016.
