'Fab Five' Gymnasts McKayla Maroney And Aly Raisman Injured During Post-Olympic Performance
McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman — two members of the "Fab Five" (consisting also of Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, Gabby Douglas), the U.S. Women's Gymnastic team that nabbed the gold in the team event and won a few individual medals to boot at the 2012 Olympics — were injured over the weekend while performing uneven bars at the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics in Ontario, California.
Maroney, 16, winner of the silver medal in the individual women's vault event at the 2012 London games, and Raisman, 18, who took home the gold for the individual women's floor exercise and the bronze for the balance beam event, fell while performing but are reportedly doing fine, according to People.
Maroney fell on her dismount from the uneven bars. Raisman fell on her land, also, hitting the concrete floor instead of the intended mat. While Raisman was able to walk out of the arena by herself, Maroney required medics to carry her off of the floor.
Neither gymnast was able to participate in the show's finale. Maroney is apparently having to spend at least some time in the hospital, as she tweeted a picture of a four-course breakfast plate with the caption, "Not bad for hospital food… :)".
Both falls were captured on video:
