McKayla Maroney might not have scored the gold medal for the vault, but the U.S. Olympic gymnast's less-than-enthused reaction to winning silver is now the stuff of internet legend.
The meme, "mckayla is not impressed," was launched after the power vaulter's loss on Sunday to Romania's Sandra Izbasa. A shoo-in for the gold, she settled for second-best after falling on her second vault during the challenge's London final.
"I already knew that I pretty much only had the silver medal," said Maroney, who scored a gold medal with Team USA last week. "I really didn't deserve to win a gold medal if I fall on my butt. I was still happy with a silver, but it's still just sad."
Her face said as much as she stood on the podium with arms crossed and lips pursed.
According to the Wall Street Journal, a 28-year-old digital designer from New York, Gavin Alaoen, cooked up "mckayla is not impressed" on Tumblr Tuesday night, photoshopping her pouty expression into an image of Usain Bolt striking a pose with London games mascot Wenlock as well as a courtside shot of the U.S. men's basketball team.
Less than 48 hours later, the blog has blown up with more examples of Maroney not being impressed: there she is in front of what appears to be NBC's 30 Rock headquarters; there she is when Beyonce flaunted her baby bump at MTV's Video Music Awards; and (there she is!) sulking in the background while Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stroll hand in hand.
