McKayla Maroney        

Retired Gymnast, Olympic Gold Medalist

McKayla Maroney is an American retired artistic gymnast. She was a member of the American women's gymnastics team dubbed the Fierce Five at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she won a gold medal in the team and an individual silver medal in the vault event. Maroney was also a member of the gold-winning American team at the 2011 World Championships, where she won gold medals in the team and vault competitions. She defended her World title and won the gold medal on vault at the 2013 World Championships, becoming the first U.S. female gymnast to defend a World Championship vault title. In 2016, she retired from competitive gymnastics.

On October 18, 2017, Maroney alleged that USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar repeatedly molested her, starting when she was 13 years old until her retirement from the sport in 2016. Maroney is one of a number of women who have come forward with stories of sexual harassment or assault under the #MeToo hashtag on Twitter. Maroney filed a suit against Nassar, Michigan State University, the United States Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics accusing the latter two of covering up the sexual abuse by asking Maroney to sign a $1.25 million confidentiality agreement. Maroney agreed and accepted the money.

Maroney and the other victims were awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
