Yes, it was short and sweet! McKayla Maroney's journey to the 2012 Olympics in London was far from easy.
Her Instagram account is full of shots just like these, and considering where she came from, you would think that she would want to stick with her professional image.
By the time they got to the Games, Maroney had been dealt another blow: She exacerbated an old injury and had to compete with a broken big toe.
If Maroney had been able to land perfectly, the world may have been denied some very funny memes, though she likely would have preferred to win the gold.
After all, she donned the floor with her hair in tight ponytails, minimal makeup, and leotards.
It was a female gymnast named Sandra Izbasa of Romania who ended up capturing gold at the 2012 Games.
