She stole our hearts during the summer Olympics, but on Friday night, Olympic Gold Medalist, McKayla Maroney, won over the fans at U.S. Cellular Field with her unique version of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

Since winning gold and silver at the London games, Maroney has been busy, winning a gold medal in vaulting at the 2013 World Championships.

This year, Maroney has yet to compete after undergoing knee surgery in March, but that didn’t seem to limit her from doing a cartwheel and front flip before tossing out the first pitch at the White Sox game.
