Things have changed for 16-year-old star gymnast McKayla Maroney since she arrived back home from the Olympic Games.
"It has been a bit frightening," she said. "We have had marriage proposals. My daughter is 16." The Long Beach, Calif.-based family is looking to avoid a stalker situation similar to that of 2008 Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Mrs. Maroney explained.
While McKayla is a little young to get hitched, some slightly older Olympians got engaged at the Games this year. An Italian volleyball player and a British pole vaulter both accepted proposals from their beaus after their events finished.
