First Day Senior MAG at the P&G Champs

6:33 PM

The Senior Men's competition at the XL Center tonight and on the 18th is set to be a fierce affair with so many big names competing. I cannot even begin to pick who might triumph so I guess all that is left to say is bring it on! My recap of today's Junior Competition is forthcoming. Unfortunately work has chewed up most of my attention today. With one rotation to go The University of Michigan's Samuel Mikulak leads over Ohio State University's Brandon Wynn and Jake Dalton. And at the conclusion of the final rotation we basically watched the Sam Mikulak show with Dalton finishing in second and Alexander Naddour in third.  Steven Legendre was the top scorer on the Floor Exercise over Eddie Penev and Stacey Ervin. Naddour was the top scorer on the Pommel Horse followed by Mikulak and Ohio State University's Michael Newburger. Brandon Wynn earned the top mark on the Still Rings followed by University of Oklahoma's Michael Squires and Naddour and Steven Lacombe (University of California-Berkeley) who tied for the third highest score. Dalton was the top scorer on the Parallel Bars followed by Mikulak and Sean Melton (USOTC). Whilst on the Horizontal Bar, Mikulak tied with John Orozco (USOTC) for the top score.

Added my little opinion: What a night... a bat loose in the XL Center and Sam Mikulak dominating in the first day of the All Around. Danell Leyva will be hoping for a better night on Sunday after a rough time on the Pommel Horse. Jacob Dalton was great and Alexander Naddour really impressed! Joshua Dixon has shown his potential whilst I was quite blown away with Brandon Wynn's routines this evening. John Orozco's comeback is underway although not the Pommel Horse routine he would have imagined having. Stacey Ervin's Floor routine was incredible and all in all I think we can say that Sunday's competition will be exciting!
