To understand the missed opportunity available to the U.S. men’s gymnastics team, forget everything you think you know about a fourth-place finish in the Olympics. With the medals in men’s team gymnastics almost assured of going to Russia, Japan and China, Team USA could’ve felt good about finishing one spot behind the three international powers, beating rival Great Britain and stamping progress from recent Olympics.
TOKYO — Fifteen months ago, during the height of the pandemic, Yul Moldauer and a couple of his training partners installed a pommel horse in the garage of their Oklahoma home. He was training for exactly this moment. In Monday’s team final at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the U.S....
Russia captured its first men's gymnastics gold medal since 2000 on Monday, narrowly defeating Japan in the team all-around competition. Russia's final score of 262.500 was just 0.103 ahead of Japan and not even a point ahead of bronze medalist China in a thrilling final. Great Britain came in fourth...
Emotions were running high at the men's team gymnastics final.

The U.S. men's gymnastics team failed to make the podium in a team event for a third straight Olympics after finishing in 5th place at Monday's final. The team representing the Russian Olympic Committee rode remarkable performances by Artur Dalaloyan and Nikita Nagornyy to edge Japan and China in a taut men’s team final.
TOKYO — The U.S. men’s gymnastics team has long known the task ahead. Winning a team medal at these Olympic Games would require an excellent performance, and the Americans delivered that much, at least until the waning moments of Monday’s final. But they also understood the other critical, but uncontrollable, piece of this medal-winning equation: Team USA needed one of the powerhouse nations to falter — multiple times. That part never materialized, so the U.S. men settled for fifth.
TOKYO — With a gold medal at stake in the final rotation of the men’s gymnastics team competition, Nikita Nagornyy had the presence of mind to improvise during his floor exercise routine with the aim of gaining every tenth of a point for his team, which is known as the Russian Olympic Committee.
The United States women's gymnastics team has dominated the Olympics over the last couple of competitions. Now in Tokyo, the team will look to keep its hot streak going while the U.S. men's team looks to medal for the first time since earning bronze in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The...
There will be 28 sports in competition Monday at the Tokyo Olympics, including the men's gymnastics team finals.
TOKYO — The subdued arena offers little indication that this is the most high-stakes, career-defining competition some of these American gymnasts have ever entered. Comparatively, this doesn’t quite feel like the Olympics to Sam Mikulak, who has been at the Games twice before. But the Olympic rings and Tokyo 2020 logos plastered all over the walls, under the judges’ tables and next to the equipment make it impossible to forget.
Men’s gymnastics qualifying at the Tokyo Olympics begins Friday night with the medal favorites – Japan, China and Russian Olympic Committee – taking to the floor, bars, pommel horse, vault and rings. In Subdivision 1, China – the defending silver medalists – finished with the top team score of 262.061....

TOKYO—Yul Moldauer knew no one expected the U.S. men's gymnastics team to earn a medal in Monday's team finals at the Tokyo Olympics. "Do you believe in miracles?'' he said. "That's the approach we're going to have.''. The Americans didn't come away with a medal, finishing in fifth place—exactly where...
