Heads up, America: the President is not impressed.

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

Afterwards, the gold medalist, 16 – who's been mimicked by everyone from Maria Menounos to, perhaps inadvertently, Prince William – seemed uncharacteristically, well, impressed.

Even members of the "Fab Five" can take a fall.

Olympians McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman were both injured while performing on uneven bars during Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics in Ontario, Calif., over the weekend.

Maroney – who took home one gold and one silver medal following this summer's Olympic Games in London – fell following a simple dismount from the bars. The 16-year-old 2011 world vault champion had to be carried out of the arena by medics.

Raisman – who took home two gold medals and one bronze in London – suffered a fall after she failed to land a Shaposhnikova.

Prince William is not impressed!

The Duke of Cambridge was photographed on Wednesday with an expression similar to what made Team USA gymnast McKayla Maroney an Internet sensation.

After losing the gold medal in the vault finals at the Summer Games in London, Maroney's less-than-thrilled mug spoke volumes about settling for the silver.

There's no slowing down for the Fierce Five!

Team USA's group of Olympic gold medalist gymnasts – Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber – began making their way through New York City, where they partied with Jordin Sparks, but not before attending a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building.

Following Tuesday's taping of The Today Show, the ladies, with moms in tow, took a bunch of photos at the lighting ceremony and seemed to be having a great time, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

"Everyone was asking McKayla about her little frown look that got all the online attention," the source says. "She kept getting asked to do it for people."

Following their busy morning, the girls, sans Douglas, got a chance to relax with new pal Sparks, whom they met on the set of Today.

The ladies joined the Sparkle star and her costars at the official afterparty for the film, presented by Alizé Coco, at the Yard at the Soho Grand Hotel.

"The girls were the hit of the party," a different source says. "Everyone wanted a picture of them!"

As the London 2012 Olympic Games press on, Saturday and Sunday's exciting events propelled British athletes to the forefront.

Although China leads with the most medals – 61, including 30 gold, 17 silver and 14 bronze – Team GB's victories helped boost the host country's morale with an outpouring of spirit and success during days 9 and 10 of the Games.

Team USA experienced highs and lows as well, as the medal count grew to 57 – 27 gold, 14 silver and 16 bronze – with Serena Williams taking home two gold medals and fan favorite McKayla Maroney's surprising finish in the women's vault final.

Kerri Strug: The Fab Five Win 'Was a True Team Effort'

Originally posted 08/01/2012 12:20PM

In 1996, gymnast Kerri Strug vaulted into history. The anchor for Team USA at the Atlanta Olympics, she competed on an injured ankle to help secure women's gymnastics their first-ever team gold medal – and Tuesday, she watched this year's 'Fab Five' win the second team gold. The now married mom of one is a spokesperson for Hilton HHonors's Support the Dream program, which allows fans to connect with Olympians. "Since I know how much the support of the fans means to the athletes, it's great to be part of a program where fans can send good luck messages to Team USA," says Strug, 34. While at the Games with her husband, Robert Fischer III, the Olympic gold medalist will blog for PEOPLE.com about her experiences in London.

I was thrilled to be in the stands to cheer on Team USA to a gold medal at the Women's Gymnastics Team finals. It brought back so many memories from the 1996 Atlanta Games. Congrats to all the members of Team USA and their families. We are all proud of you and proud to be Americans.

As I entered the North Greenwich Arena, I had butterflies in my stomach. This year's team is so mentally and physically strong, I knew they had what it would take to bring home Gold in the team competition.

My husband Robert and I had a great view from our seats and the arena was full of fans from every country, waving with flags and supporting their home team. Team USA started on the vault, their best event, and the first rotation set the tempo for the rest of the night.
