Male Gymnast to Watch: Danell Leyva
Leyva is the current world champion on parallel bars and has a great shot to bring home Olympic gold and glory to America.
The 22-year-old is arguably the best male gymnast that the U.S. has to offer this summer and should be a favorite to win at the high bar and an important member of the various team events.
If the USA is going to avoid embarrassment and a gold medal draught, which they suffered at the 2008 Beijing Games, they need Leyva to come through.
Female Gymnast to Watch: Jordyn Wieber
The 17-year-old star has won gold with Team USA at the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo in the team event and also all around.
It’s her first Olympic Games and the young woman from DeWitt, Mich. will be instrumental in the success (or failure) of her squad in London.
That is a lot of pressure, but if anyone can help restore the luster to Team USA, it’s Jo Wieber.
