Impressive list of White House visitors

President Obama and McKayla Maroney
McKayla Maroney and President Barack Obama share a scowl.
We can’t celebrate Inauguration Day without revisiting some of the key visitors during President Barack Obama’s first term in office. Obama hosted a Who’s Who of female athletes at the White House over his first four years. Some of the headliners included the Fierce Five (Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber and Kyla Ross), Sanya Richards-Ross, Serena Williams, Brittney Griner and Katie Ledecky. Among others, Billie Jean King, Michelle Kwan and the U.S. women's national soccer team also visited with the First Lady in support of her Let's Move! campaign.
