Over a year after leaving Twitter — and two years after taking a break from Instagram — former Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney returned to the former social media platform, first with a photo post in August, and then again with two posts earlier this week.
Sharing a set of photos of herself in purple hot pants while posing next to a card, the 23-year-old wrote, “Caring less, doing more.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the athlete wrote, “Hold on tightly to what ur grateful for.”
Maroney posted her first tweet in over a year earlier in the summer, sharing another carside selfie on Aug. 8 and writing, “I don’t ever think twice when it feels right.”
The athlete hasn’t posted on her Instagram since Sept. 2017.
"missed u guys :cloud: last few years a lots happened w the #MeToo movement, and losing my dad very unexpectedly.. i'll definitely talk about it more, but for now i'll just say that even on the worst days, i knew i had so much to be thankful for," she posted.
Maroney continued, "i have the most supportive family, and friends, and u guys are part of that. blessed to have u, and happy to be back."
