Danell Leyva and John Orozco punched their tickets to London at the Olympic Trials on Saturday night. The rest of the team will be named tomorrow. Former OU Sooner Jonathan Horton was third, while OU's Jake Dalton tied with former Sooner Chris Brooks for fourth. Brooks rebounded from troubles in night one to post the third highest tally.
Former Illini Paul Ruggeri was 6th while current Illini CJ Maestas was 7th. Former Sooner Steve Legendre was 8th.
Michigan's Sam Mikulak, the highest scorer on night, could only compete on pommel horse after an ill-time sprained ankle. His injury shakes up the potential Olympic squad.
In the all important individual events, athletes sought to place in the top three as many times as possible in the final tally. Some gymnasts rebounded from problems during one of the four days of competition, while others had consistent efforts all four nights. Dalton won floor and vault to strengthen his bid. Former teammate Alex Naddour won PH, but had a few problems on the final night. Horton won rings, and was 2nd on PB. Leyva won PB and HB.
