The American artistic gymnast won a gold team medal and silver individual medal in the vault competition.
When accepting her silver medal, the then 16-year-old was pictured looking utterly disappointed as she accepted her medal and the image became one of the biggest memes of the year.
Now 20, the former athlete has retired from competitive gymnastics after undergoing surgery on her knee and suffering adrenal fatigue.
