With the huge number of gymnasts in the men’s field (43), the wide range of various strengths and weaknesses among the competitors, and the complex nature of putting together a five-man team that best captures the three best on each event for London, it’s easy to feel a little lost in the year’s men’s Visa ...
It’s definitely time to put another StockWatch update out there, as a whole lot has happened since my last rank lists in March. Since that time, we’ve seen the retirement of Paul Hamm, the international return of David Sender, the completion of the Pacific Rim Championships, City of Jesolo Meet, and NCAA Championships, and the ...
I was a bit tough on Sam Mikulak when he dropped out of the Olympic Test Event in January. I had watched recent training videos from the rising star who had won the 2011 NCAA all-around title as just a freshman at the University of Michigan, and I had begun to see his potential to ...
I’ll be periodically updating my “London StockWatch” picks between now and the selection of America’s Olympic teams – particularly after major competitions, injuries, comeback debuts, or any other time something happens that seems to affect the statuses of some of the top Olympic contenders. This is one of those times. Following the American Cup, and also ...
Chris Brooks was an unrecognized star of this meet. I was disappointed and surprised they didn’t show one routine of his, and in fact didn’t even seem to mention the fact (unless I missed it) that he hit six for six and placed 3rd as a “non-competitor” in the meet. He was actually just 0.7 ...
Gabrielle Douglas and Chris Brooks will be doing a whole lot more than giving “exhibitions” at this weekend’s American Cup. They’ll be making their cases to be granted one of the five available spots on this summer’s Olympic team. Although Olympic spots won’t be officially awarded until at least the conclusion of the Olympic Trials exactly ...

My new current top ten U.S. Men's Olympic contenders (in order), based on the results of this weekend's Winter Cup: 1. John Orozco – Currently America’s best male gymnast. Orozco had an even more stunning performance on Day 2 than he had on Day 1, including 15’s on five out of the six events. His next ...
What happened to the Olympic “stock” of some of the top Olympic contenders on Day 1 at the Men’s Winter Cup in Las Vegas? Stock Went Up John Orozco: Any performance that simply re-demonstrates the gymnastics and composure that he showed at last year’s nationals and world championships will continue to solidify his value to Team USA. ...
The official roster for the upcoming Winter Cup, to be held February 2-4 in Las Vegas, has just been released. Many fans will be extremely excited to see that both 2004 Olympic champion Paul Hamm and 2008 national all-around champion David Sender are currently slated to compete. Below are a total of 13 gymnasts – including ...
