The CW sure does love their Olympians!

Following in the footsteps of Ryan Lochte and teammate Gabby Douglas, gold-medal winning gymnast McKayla Maroney is guest starring in a season two episode of the medical drama Hart of Dixie, the network confirms.

We gotta admit, we're impressed! (Get it?!)

Maroney will play Tonya, a friend of Rose's (McKaley Miller), who comes to her defense, in an upcoming episode of Rachel Bilson's charming series. 

Maroney's teammate Douglas is set to appear on The Vampire Diaries in a non-speaking role, while Lochte will play himself in an episode of 90210

The vaulter's love of TV is well-documented: she recently visited the sets of How I Met Your Mother and Pretty Little Liars!

Hart of Dixie returns for its second season on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on the CW.
