American Cup Preview…Men

Much has been said about the outstanding men’s field at this year’s American Cup.  I’d have to agree.  We’ve got some of the most exciting all-around competitors from all over the world, not to mention the two gymnasts whom most would call America’s very best right now.  I’ll highlight each gymnast below by giving you a few of each guy’s most important stats and one video that I think represents each gymnast well.

Fabian Hambuechen, Germany

2009 American Cup Champion

2009 European All-Around Champion

2008 Olympic High Bar Bronze Medalist

2007 World High Bar Champion

2007 World All-Around Silver Medalist
