All-Around Mastery

Yul Moldauer, a junior at Oklahoma who made FACES IN THE CROWD (March 27, 2017) after winning the all-around at the American Cup, dominated collegiate gymnastics this year. He won 25 event titles and five conference championships. And after successfully defending his American Cup title this year—the 21-year-old is the first gymnast to win that event in back-to-back years since Olympic medalist Jonathan Horton—he turned in a memorable performance at the NCAA championships in Chicago in April. Moldauer, from Arvada, Colo., won four individual titles—on floor, vault and parallel bars and in all-around—helping the Sooners to their fourth straight national championship. He was also second on rings and pommel horse. He now has seven career national titles, tied for the most in NCAA history.
