(6 votes, average 4.33 out of 5)

In an interview in the October 2016 issue of International Gymnast magazine, MG Elite coach Maggie Haney said that coaching 2016 Olympic gold and silver medalist Laurie Hernandez has enriched her life.

“It has been a true pleasure to coach Laurie since she was just a little girl,” said Haney, who also coaches 2014 U.S. junior all-around champion Jazmyn Foberg and 2016 U.S junior all-around silver medalist Riley McCusker. “She has made my day-to-day life better. I love her like my own daughter.”

A native of Richardson, Texas, Haney attended North Carolina State on a full ride and became the first Wolfpack gymnast to score a 10.0 (balance beam).
