OU Gymnast Jake Dalton Wins NCAA All-Around Title

Oklahoma Gymnast Jake Dalton takes NCAA all-around title: Oklahoma gymnast Jake Dalton was given his opening when Michigan gymnast and 2012 Olympic hopeful Sam Mikulak slipped during his pommel horse routine. He allowed Dalton to pull within range for the NCAA men's gymnastics all-around crown Friday at Lloyd Noble Center with a vault score of 15.55. Mikulak is the 2011 all-around champion, and he was cruising in first place until that moment. Dalton edged out Mikulak to win the first all-around title of his career. “It was just coming down to the end of the set, and I just started thinking too much,” Mikulak said. “I just rushed my dismount a little too much.” Mikulak defeated Dalton earlier this season when Michigan came to Norman by just three tenths of a point.
