McKayla Maroney, World Vault Champion and one of the members of the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team, will compete with a broken toe. Earlier today in podium training she vaulted half a dozen times on a fractured toe.
According to McKayla:
"Bad things happen, you just have to make the best of it," Maroney told NBCOlympics.com. "It does hurt. It's broken. How is it not going to hurt? I just try to ignore it and I have worked so hard to be here I can ignore the pain for a little bit."
