It was the Sam Mikulak show tonight in Hartford.
Overall, a strong meet. Fewer falls than I expected. Vault was very impressive. Floor too. How many Tamayos did we see? Many! I would have given Dalton credit this time around.
Many questioned whether John Orozco should be back trying the all-around so soon after his knee surgery. He showed flashes of the old brilliance, but overall it looked like he should have stayed training.
Danell did not look like the 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist. The Olympic Silver medalist has announced he’ll not compete Worlds 2013, instead going back to the gym to prepare. Perhaps Danell should do the same.
This routine was hairy. But somehow Sam finds a way to HIT. It’s a pleasure to watch him compete.

Sam’s the only LOCK for Worlds 2013, so far.
