Team USA’s leotards bring back memories of Mary Lou Retton’s look

Maggie Hendricks

During the final day of gymnastics, Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman wore leotards that reminded viewers of another gymnastics legend. The leotard, which was also worn by trampolinist Savannah Vinsant, was an update of the famous flag look worn by Mary Lou Retton when she won gold in 1984. As always with the Fierce Five, a whole lot of sparkle was added.

Can you blame Wieber and Raisman for trying to catch some of Mary Lou's magic? She won five medals in Los Angeles, including all-around gold.
