Washington, Nov. 18 (ANI): President Barack Obama jokingly mimicked U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney 'not impressed' scowl during her visit to the White House recently.

During the U.S. women's gymnastics team's visit to the White House on Thursday, Obama posed with Maroney, pulling the apathetic expression that made her an Internet sensation during the Summer Games in London.

Team USA's Fierce Five Olympic gymnastics team, including McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, reunited in Washington, D.C. for an audience with Obama.

"All together again!! FIERCE 5 reunited. So good being back with my best friends," Maroney, 16, tweeted Thursday.

According to the US Magazine, when meeting Obama in the Oval Office, Maroney kidded around with the Commander-in-Chief and got him to mimic her 'not impressed' expression that was all the rage this summer during the London Games.

"Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President . . . ?" Maroney tweeted to her 481,000 Twitter followers.

Later, the White House posted photographic proof to their Flickr page that Obama did indeed get in on the fun and impersonate the look the athlete had on her face after receiving the silver medal in the Olympic women's vault competition August 5, the report said. (ANI)
