McKayla Maroney Is Not Impressed With You

Scientific American posted an article yesterday called “Why Bronze Medalists Are Happier Than Silver Winners.” As you can imagine, for silver medalists it has a lot to do with coming so close to winning the gold, whereas Bronze medalists are just happy to have placed at all.

See the all-around in gymnastics, where Russians Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina came in second and third.

Mustafina, who is generally called a “diva” by everyone including Bob Costas, held her bronze proudly, smiling and waving while her teammate Komova unsuccessfully tried to hold back the tears.

Another case is McKayla Maroney, a strong favorite to win vault who lost to Romania’s Sandra Izbașa and made a very memorable face during her medal ceremony…

The ice queen “bitch face” has earned its own Tumblr. “McKayla is not impressed” is an entire page of the now famous gymnast photoshopped next to epic things, and looking unimpressed by them.

She’s had a good sense of humor about the whole thing (she retweeted a link to the site), and she did kind of explain the face after the competition when she said:

“I didn’t deserve to win gold if I landed on my butt. I’m not disappointed about the silver; I’m disappointed about my performance.”
