McKayla is representing America in the London 2012 Olympics!
“This is the best feeling – it’s just so amazing. I’m in shock right now. I think this will be the happiest I’ll ever be in my life. It’s the absolute best feeling knowing that I trained so hard for this and all the hard things that I have accomplished and now to be on this team. These girls are my best friends. My team mate Kyla Ross, we have been best friends since we were six years old so it’s just absolutely amazing to be going to the Olympics.”
After a score of 15.800 in the Women’s Qualification, McKayla is officially in the Vault final.
Team USA has claimed the gold for gymnastics, with McKayla contributing a vault score of 16.233 toward the team’s score, the highest in the competition. “We definitely started the competition with a bang.”
