Sam Mikulak

Sam Mikulak finally did it!

I have been following the results of the 2018 Gymnastics World Championships this week and I was so happy to see Sam Mikulak come away from these World Championships with the bronze medal on the High Bar.  He has been a leader for the US Men for several years both as a member of two Olympic teams but also on the collegiate level.  He has always been the favored member of team USA to medal at an international competition such as the World Championships or Olympic games.  Unfortunately it hasn’t worked out as planned and I am glad to see him still competing and working harder than ever to be the best he can be and come away with some hardware.  Sam is very fun to watch. He flies high on the high bar and has a very impressive routine on the parallel bars. Things seem to be lining up just right for him and I hope he can continue to be a member of this US team.  His experience and positive attitude will continue to drive the men’s team to improve and be ready for the future.  It would be fantastic to see him at a third Olympics in 2020.

Check out Sam’s amazing routine on the high bar.

It is awesome to see how excited he was to win this medal.  It was clearly a long week for him and after having a disappointing finish of fifth place in the All-Around, Sam talks about the redemption he had on the last event in the meet, the High Bar event final.  The fact that he wants to strive to win more medals in the future shows that he could be a powerhouse in this sport.
