Obama 'Unimpressed' Photo with O.C. Native Gymnast Goes Viral

According to a local blog, President Obama kidded about McKayla Maroney's "not impressed" look while greeting her and members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams in the Oval Office.

Southern California Public Radio Blog reports a photo of gold medalist and Laguna Niguel native McKayla Maroney and President Barack Obama went viral Saturday.

"The photo of her doing her now-famous "McKayla Maroney is not impressed" face went viral Saturday after the White House posted it on Twitter. The two took the picture Thursday when Maroney and her Fierce Five teammates visited the White House," the blog reports.

The photo can also be seen here at the White House Twitter feed. The photo was snapped by AP photographer Pete Souza / The White House on Nov. 15.

"He was the one who brought it up," Maroney told The Associated Press. "We were about to leave and he said, 'I want to talk to you one second about the face.' He said, 'I pretty much do that face at least once a day,'" says the blog.

Maroney was photographed making the half scowl with her nose scrunched up while she was on the medals podium after winning silver on vault at the London Olympics.
