McKayla Maroney’s Provocative Instagram Photo Goes Viral

McKayla Maroney’s Provocative Instagram Photo Goes Viral

Legendary gymnast McKayla Maroney is a well-regarded retired Olympian who grew to international prominence as a vital and irreplaceable part of the U.S. women’s team 10 years ago.

At the 2012 Games, Maroney won gold in both the team event and a silver medal in the individual vault event.

In the years since her retirement from the sport, Maroney has worked on becoming a massive social media influencer – with great results.

Currently she has more than 1.4 million followers on Instagram alone.

That massive reach is a big reason why she went viral last week. In a post aimed at promoting positivity, she published this:

The response was swift. The post earned nearly 87,000 likes – including many comments about Maroney’s choice of attire.

“Omg I love this sports bra! My colors,” wrote one fan.

“I’d tell you where it’s from but idk! It’s 9 years old and was given to me when I shot an ad for Dora the Explorer,” Maroney replied.

This obviously isn’t the first time Maroney has gone viral. Her other recent works speak for themselves:

Her TikToks also do extremely well:

In addition, her racy dance video from last month nearly broke the internet.

Clearly Maroney is going to continue to evolve into a massive social media influencer as the months turn into years.

As long as she doesn’t land herself in the emergency room again, and assuming Maroney can shift with social media trends, she will likely find the second act of her young career very lucrative.
