McKayla Maroney Vaults Again

Today, McKayla Maroney started her redemption parade, defending the world vault title she won in 2011. In between, however, she famously fell on her butt and made a face that was seen 'round the world. She gamely played along with the joke, but it must've rankled Maroney, one of the all-time greats on vault, to be known for falling and smirking.

But what makes Maroney so great on vault? Well, I'm glad I read your mind and saw that you had asked that question. That's why I wrote this analysis of Maroney and women's vaulting for Deadspin. Go for Maroney, stay for Elena Produnova's badass vault, embedded at the end of the piece.
