McKayla Maroney is a very beloved retired gymnast who rose to prominence as an integral part of the American women’s team known as the Fierce Five during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Maroney won gold in the team and an individual silver medal in the vault event.
Since retiring from the sport, Maroney has become internet famous as a social media influencer. She boasts 1.4 million followers on Instagram and approximately 82,000 on TikTok.
This week, Maroney posted a video on social media that immediately went viral:
For obvious reasons, this isn’t the first time Maroney has gone viral. She previously did it with a particularly salacious TikTok video and also when she inexplicably managed to land herself in the ER with an unfortunate incident.
And then of course there are just her standard Instagram posts:
With what she’s meant to women’s gymnastics over the past decade, it’s great to see that Maroney has found such a lucrative and fulfilling career in her retirement.
Now that’s a wedding dress. https://t.co/lTPUx6ziGr
