About McKayla Rose Maroney
McKayla Maroney is an American former artistic gymnast and current entertainer. She was a member of the U.S. women's gymnastics team dubbed the Fierce Five at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she won a gold medal in the team and an individual silver medal in the vault event. Maroney was also a member of the gold-winning American team at the 2011 World Championships where she won gold medals in the team and vault competitions. She defended her World title and won the gold medal on vault at the 2013 World Championships, becoming the first U.S. female gymnast to defend a World Championships vault title. A photograph of her with a "not impressed" expression, taken after winning silver in the 2012 Olympics, became an Internet meme. She decided in 2016 to no longer compete in gymnastics due to health issues.
Maroney made her acting debut in the CW television series Hart of Dixie on November 20, 2012. She played Tonya, a friend of Rose's in the episode "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me." That appearance turned into a recurring role, with Maroney appearing in six episodes of the series. In December 2013, Maroney appeared on an episode of the Fox TV show Bones called "The Spark in the Park" (season 9), as a gymnast named Ellie who is a suspect in the murder of a fellow gymnast. In summer 2016 Maroney announced that she would be making a singing debut with a single titled "Ghost."
