Olympics 2012: Best and Worst Moments
The men’s gymnastics team got off to a very rough start in the team finals on Monday, beginning with a fall by Sam Mikulak on the Floor Exercise. Subsequent falls occurred on the Pommel Horse and Vault, and after three rotations, the medal hopefuls found themselves in eighth place, or dead last. They recovered slightly to finish in fifth, a far cry from the podium that many had predicted they’d stand on.
