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.
Gabby Douglas and Kyla Ross sit front row during Monday night’s (April 8) Dancing With The Stars taping in Los Angeles.
The two Olympians and Fierce Five members were there to support Aly Raisman, who is competing on the show with partner Mark Ballas.
“So glad I got to come support @Aly_Raisman and @MarkBallas on DWTS! Tune in tonight to see their amazing performance!” Kylatweeted.
Gabby added, “Congrats Aly and Mark you guys did fabulous!!!”
Aly told Glamour after the show, “We don’t get to see each other all that much, so it’s really special when they are here, and they couldn’t have picked a better night to come. Without them, I wouldn’t be in this competition.”
Along with team mate Jordyn Wieber, the Fierce Five hit up the talk show to chat about the ending of the Kellogg’s Gymnastics Tour of Champions and their upcoming appearance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
“Saying goodbye to everyone is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done… I’m gonna miss you all so much #family,” Jordyn tweeted about the tour ending. “Had the time of my life… Thank you to all the fans who saw our show and made our tour possible!”
Be sure to tune into the parade, on Thursday, November 22nd beginning @ 9AM ET/PT on NBC.
