McKayla Maroney is the daughter of a former Purdue quarterback, Michael Maroney. She is 5 feet 2 and gets her size from her mother, Erin, not her 6-foot-2 dad. But McKayla has some athletic talent from her father. The 15-year-old from Laguna Niguel will compete for the U.S. at the 2011 world gymnastics championships in Tokyo from Friday to Oct. 16. It is the competition where the top eight teams will earn spots at the 2012 London Olympics and where international judges will get a sense of who will be most competitive for the Games next summer.
