Sam’s looking to medal in Doha

Read the interview by Blythe Lawrence:

… If all goes according to plan, Mikulak will be a multiple-event medal threat in the Middle East.

He’s posted one of the highest all-around scores in the world so far this year — an 87.75 as he won his fifth U.S. men’s title back in August — a mark slightly above six-time world champion Kohei Uchimura’s best on the season, according to a database kept by thegymnter.net. That alone makes him a viable candidate for an all-around medal, provided he can deliver six clean routines on the day of the competition.

He’s also made Olympic finals on floor, vault and high bar, where he finished just off the podium in Rio in 2016.
