Who to Watch: Sam Mikulak

Lots of excitement is included in the Olympic games and sometimes it’s hard to know what to have on your Olympic watching marathon list (I don’t even know what I just wrote lol). Well, at the very top of your list should be to at least watch a few of Sam Mikulak’s routines…

1. Sam Mikulak performs a great set on the floor exercise, but this isn’t his strongest event and he will most likely not be medaling on this event. However, you should definitely  keep an eye out for this routine that includes some very powerful tumbling and strength moves!

2. Sam often shows a fantastic routine on pommel horse featuring many difficult skills and keeping his form throughout! Make sure to watch for this routine because it could definitely make it to event finals!

3. Rings is again not one of Sam’s strongest events but he is very consistent on this event and has great execution throughout his routine.
4. Sam has a nice vault and often sticks his landing. This is also a fairly difficult vault!
5. Sam shows a great set on parallel bars and this is typically one of his stronger routines. Keep an eye out for this routine specifically in the team final!
6. Last but not least, we have high bar. When Sam hits on this event he can put up a great score! He is definitely a contender for the high bar final.
Sam is a terrific all around gymnast all together and I can’t wait to see what he can do in Rio. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more!*
