I'm sure by now you've heard about the McKayla is not impressed tumblr page, created because of the photo (at right) taken during the vault award ceremony. McKayla Maroney, the heavy favorite to win vault, was obviously and understandably disappointed by her silver-medal finish, and it was captured in a photo that has now been added to all sorts of other scenes, from a Justin Bieber concert to the moon landing.
At first I felt badly for Maroney, who also did manage to smile on the medal stand (see below), but she has embraced the joke, and it's now made her one of the most well-known stars of the 2012 Games.
My favorite "McKayla is not impressed" photos so far:
- At the invention of the wheel
- With the women's world record-breaking relay team
- With Charlie Brown
- On the cover of Sports Illustrated with Michael Phelps
