ST. LOUIS (AP) – Eighteen of the nation’s top gymnasts are in St. Louis, hoping to make the U.S. men’s gymnastics team — among them six current or former gymnasts at the University of Oklahoma.

The final stage of the qualifying competition starts today and wraps up on Saturday. The process actually began with two days of competition earlier this month at the national gymnastics championship in Hartford, Connecticut, with Olympics veteran Sam Mikulak taking the all-around title.

Current Sooner and reigning NCAA all-around champ Yul Moldauer is among those competing, along with former OU gymnasts Chris Brooks, Kanji Oyama, Alex Naddour, Steven Legendre and Jake Dalton, who finished third in the all-around at Hartford.
