Jonathan Horton (26, Houston, TX)
Horton is the only American gymnast—male of female—with prior Olympic experience. With two more medals, Horton would tie Mitch Gaylord as the most decorated American male gymnast of the modern era (excludes 1904 Games).
Jake Dalton (20, Norman, OK)
Dalton leads the way on vault and floor exercise.
Danell Leyva (20, Homestead, FL)
America’s best all-arounder is also a threat to win individual medals on parallel bars and high bar.
Sam Mikulak (19, Ann Arbor, MI)
Mikulak looked like the breakout star of U.S. Trials before re-aggravating his troublesome left ankle. If healthy, he’s a major player on vault, pommel horse and, potentially, in the all-around.
John Orozco (19, Colorado Springs, CO)
Though he doesn’t wow on any one apparatus, the Bronx native is a solid all-arounder who may well hold the keys to USA’s medal hopes in the team competition.
Chris Brooks (25, Houston, TX)
Steven Legendre (23, Norman, OK)
Alex Naddour (21, Glibert, AZ)
