McKayla Maroney Grabs Gold on Vault; Kyla Ross Second in All-Around in Antwerp

Kyla Ross shows off her silver medal at the 2013 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships Belgium held at the Antwerp Sports Palace on Saturday afternoon (October 4) in Antwerp, Belgium.

During the week-long competition, the 16-year-old Olympian picked up two silver medals — one for Uneven Bars and another for the Womens All-Round Final.

Kyla‘s teammate McKayla Maroney grabbed the gold medal for the Vault Final on Saturday (October 5).

“To be completely honest, it was kind of scary,” McKayla shared afterwards. “There definitely was some pressure on me. Looking back isn’t going to help you. Moving forward is the thing you have to do.”

Simone Biles, 16, grabbed the gold for the Womens All-Round Final.

  • obsessedwithmustafina

    Biles was overscored on every event.
    I’m glad McKayla won on vault.

    Aliya Mustafina is the gymnastics queen, anyway!

    Simone did an incredible job and her world championship title shouldn’t be overshadowed. She worked hard as any other gymnast. Happy to see Mustafina back and hope she continues to become healthy. She looked tired and did well for competing while getting over the flu. Happy for McKayla and Kyla as well, but credit should be given to all the athletes that worked hard.
