Having your spotlight stolen at the Olympics isn’t usually a good thing, but in this case it might be.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, McKayla Maroney seems quite ecstatic that Michael Phelps is stealing her meme spotlight with his recent angry face, which Twitter immediately made famous. “I now see why people thought (the memes were) so funny” the gymnast stated.

Maroney became a legend when her “not impressed” face blew up everywhere. Thank god Phelps has come along to relieve her as queen of Olympic memes. “Somebody tweeted like, ‘McKayla looks like somebody took your spot’ … and I looked at his pictures and was like YES! Go Michael, take it away please!” At least she can now have a laugh with this one.
