Moldauer, Malone and Braunton Earn 2017 U.S. Men’s Gymnastics Titles

ANAHEIM,CA -- Yul Moldauer earned his first U.S. Championships all-around title, leading the contest the whole way, also garnering a share of the floor title.

2017 U.S. Men’s Gymnastics Championships Day 1 – The Math and Possible Logic

Yul Moldauer put some daylight (1.95 points to be exact) between himself and his main rival, Akash Modi. The probability of Moldauer making enough mistakes to find himself an equivalent distance behind Modi (or someone else) is very low. However, Modi can make up almost all the ground he lost from his low score on PH (12.75) if he hits that event (and makes no other major errors), as he is capable of scoring in the mid 14s on horse. The gap may also close if [...more]
