VIDEO: McKayla Maroney returns to the gym

Jun 11, 2013, 11:09 AM EST


Olympic champ McKayla Maroney returned to Karolyi Ranch this week for the first time since last May, when she was preparing for London. And even though she’s arguably more famous for her unimpressed face on the podium, the Fierce Fiver showed why she’s one of the best vaulters in the world, and then added some work on the bars and a new tumbling pass for the floor. She’s now the third member of last summer’s team to get back into training, following teammates Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber.

    She’s looking great! However I would like to point out that she was actually the 2nd member to go back to training, given that Kyla Ross only took a very short break. And Aly Raisman is also training again so that means that all of the Fierce Five are back! Good luck to them all :D

      I’m surprised at how good she looks! Especially after she had 2 or 3 surgeries from an injury back in October. Love that all the girls are back in the gym, they had so many more media opportunities then Shawn or Nastia and still returned within the year. I think we can see Jordyn, Gabby and Aly sometime next summer.
