ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The generational shift is well underway for the U.S. men's Olympic gymnastics program. It's just not completely over.
Two-time Olympian Sam Mikulak and 2016 bronze medalist Alex Naddour both overcame injuries to make the six-man 2017 world championship team announced Sunday. Donnell Whittenburg, an alternate on the 2016 Olympic team and a two-time world championship team member, also made the squad that will travel to Montreal in October.
Yul Moldauer, who won the all-around title at the U.S. championships on Saturday, made his first world championship team. Eddie Penev and Marvin Kimble also will compete for the Americans.
Moldauer will compete in the all-around, with the rest of the team working on individual events. There is no team competition at worlds, giving recently named high performance director Brett McClure plenty of flexibility to choose more event specialists.
The meet runs from Oct. 2-8.
