2012 Olympics Video: McKayla Maroney Wins Silver Medal in Women’s Gymnastics Vault

| by Alex Groberman

McKayla Maroney, owner of the highest vault score during the 2012 London Olympics qualifiers, just couldn’t replicate that magic on Sunday.

When it was all said and done, her overall score of 15.083 earned her a silver medal behind Romania’s Sandra Raluca Izbasa, who took first place with an overall of 15.191.

"I didn't deserve to to win gold if I landed on my butt," Maroney told reporters after the competition.

"I'm not disappointed about the silver, I'm disappointed about my performance."

Russia’s Maria Paseka finished third with 15.050.
