The next McKayla Maroney? USA figure skater Ashley Wagner was all smiles at her team's event at the 2014 Sochi Olympics Saturday -- until, that is, she received her score.

Shortly after smiling with her team by the benches, the 22-year-old athlete became visibly upset when she looked up at the scoreboard. Although she helped USA advance to the next event, she landed in fourth place with a score of 63.10.

The priceless shot could easily become the first meme of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Back in 2012, it was USA Olympic gymnast Maroney who started the Olympic meme trend when she was photographed looking "not impressed." At the time, she was receiving the silver medal in the Olympic women's vault competition. Maroney, 18, poked fun at herself, was mocked by celebrities, and even recreated the moment in a snapshot with President Barack Obama during a visit to the White House that November.

Wagner, meanwhile, made headlines before she even landed in Russia. The two-time national champion was chosen over her teammate Mirai Nagasu to attend her first Olympics, despite the fact that she came in fourth and Nagasu claimed third place at the U.S. Championships last month. On Feb. 4, Wagner spoke out about the controversy.

"Mirai has been absolutely incredible. She and I have been friends for quite some time now and she texted me and we've been in touch after Nationals," she said of Nagasu, 20, during a Today show appearance. "She just said, 'You know what, you deserve to be on this team, I'm cheering you on, good luck,' so to have that support is everything to me."
