McKayla Maroney Falls During Vault Finals, Wins Silver Medal
McKayla Maroney fails to land her dismount in the Artistic Gymnastics Women’s Vault final on Day 9 of the 2012 Summer Olympics at North Greenwich Arena on Sunday (August 5) in London, England.
The 16-year-old gymnast, who performed a flawless vault earlier in the week to help the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team take home the gold in the Team final, ended up with the silver medal.
“I didn’t deserve to to win gold if I landed on my butt,” McKayla said (via USA Today). “I’m not disappointed about the silver, I’m disappointed about my performance.”
Sandra Raluca Izbasa of Romania took home the gold while Maria Paseka of Russia won bronze.
