Even McKayla Maroney herself might be a little impressed with this.

The 2012 Olympic gymnast stole the show at the Chicago White Sox baseball game Friday when she took the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Looking cuter than cute in a custom White Sox jersey, the athlete tossed the first pitch straight into the catcher's mitt, having put a unique spin on it ...

Performing a full-on cartwheel and flip preceding the actual pitch?

Not something you see every day, as the MLB team soon noted.

"One of our more creative pitches from Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney," the Sox Tweeted after the game began. "A very impressive first pitch."

True to form, McKayla quickly downplayed the viral moment.

"FYI I've already thrown a pitch from the mound," Maroney tweeted with a video of her past effort at a L.A. Dodgers game. "I was just unveiling my changeup pitch;)."

50 Cent has officially been put to shame by an 18-year-old.

McKayla is Not Impressed!
McKayla Maroney is not impressed with her silver medal at the vault in the Olympics. Ho hum.
