Kyla Ross was the youngest member of the Fierce Five American women's team that won Olympic gold in 2012. As a first-year senior, who hadn't even competed at a world championships before the Games, Ross said all along that she wouldn't be retiring post-London. She only did a select number of the Olympic Tour stops in the fall of 2012, opting instead to head back to training. Ross was slated to compete at the American Cup on March 2, before withdrawing due to a bruised heel. She recovered quickly, and was back for the 2013 US nationals, where she placed second all-around.
