U.S. Male Gymnasts See End of 28-Year Wait for Team Gold

U.S. men’s gymnastics squad members say they are confident of winning their first Olympic gold medal in the team event in 28 years after qualifying ahead of Russia and Britain in London today.

“We did a really good job,” 26-year-old Jonathan Horton told reporters at North Greenwich Arena. “Obviously it is a confidence boost. We’ve got one more day to go and we’re pumped about it.”

The U.S. team, which includes Horton, Danell Leyva, Jacob Dalton, John Orozco and Samuel Mikulak, scored 275.342 in the second session of the qualifying event today. That beat Russia’s 272.595 and the U.K.’s score of 272.420. Both of those teams also qualified.

The U.S. won the gold medal at the Los Angeles Games in 1984 and Horton was on the squad that finished third in Beijing four years ago. The top three will be joined in the team final by Germany, Japan, China, Ukraine and France.

“We just need to keep confident,” the 19-year-old Mikulak said after the event. “I think we’ll be able to do some big stuff in a few days.”
