Maggie Nichols is a very common name that is brought up when talking about gymnasts in this gymnastics quad. Early on in the quad, maybe 2013, when you mentioned the name Maggie Nichols, almost no one would know who you were talking about. And if they did know of her, they probably thought that she was some young, first-year, senior with big dreams. However, mention her name now and almost everyone will automatically think of the experienced, skilled, gymnast with 2 world medals. If that doesn’t sound like improvement to you… what does? Even the Martha Karolyi said that at the beginning of the quad she wasn’t even considering Maggie for any international assignments… and now, she’s considering Maggie for the Olympics. That is just crazy! And that is one reason that I am a HUGE fan of Maggie.
In 2012, Maggie competed at the Visa Championships in the junior division and placed 11th all around. Just 3 years later, Maggie competed at the P&G Championships in the senior division and placed 2nd in the all around behind 3-time world all around champ Simone Biles! Below, watch Maggie’s vault from 2012 and her vault from 2015:
