Gymnast McKayla Maroney on a possible return to the Olympics in 2016, acting and partnering with 7-UP

U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney became an Internet sensation after her not impressed face went viral. And that face was photographed on the medal podium giving a brief look of disappointment after she won a silver medal in the vaults. But her real claim to fame is helping the women's gymnastics team win the gold at last summer's Olympic games.

Now Maroney is catapulting into a new field acting. She appears in the CW TV show called "Heart of Dixie" and working with 7-UP on a new line of sodas.

This morning on "Starting Point," Maroney talks with Soledad about her life after the Olympics, and her plan to return to recapture gold in 2016.
