Meet your Olympic Men’s gymnastics team to compete in Rio for this summer’s upcoming Olympic games. The men’s gymnastic trials took place in St. Louis on June 24 and 25.
After under 15 minutes of deliberation, the Olympic selection committee picked only five men out of the 18 gymnasts at the competition. They picked John Orozco, Chris Brooks, Jacob Dalton, Sam Mikulak and Alex Naddour based on their performances at the Olympic trials and the U.S. national championships, which was held in early June.
After serving as alternates for the team in the 2012 Games in London, both Brooks and Naddour will be making their Olympic debuts.
Now, check out these demi-gods in all of their glory.
Sam Mikulak is from Newport Beach, California. He is 23 years old and attended the University of Michigan. He has 13 national titles, and this will be his second Olympics. He was the favorite to be picked as team captain even before the trials began.
