Two days after the U.S. Men’s Gymnastics team had a disappointing finish in the all-around team final, Sam Mikulak and Chris Brooks struggled in the men’s all-around individual final.

Twenty-four gymnasts competed in the final and the two Americans finished in the middle of the pack: Mikulak placed 7th and Brooks placed 14th.

Japan’s Kohei Uchimura took home gold, Ukraine’s Oleg Verniaiev took the silver and Great Britain’s Max Whitlock took the bronze.

Neither Mikulak nor Brooks made any major mistakes – they simply failed to show the consistency necessary for a medal.

Mikulak did well on parallel bars (15.766) and high bar (15.133), but struggled on the rings (14.366) and pommel horse (14.600).

Brooks also did well on the high bar (15.200) and parallel bars (15.066), but a 13.200 on the pommel horse cost him any shot at a medal.

Despite the loss, both Mikulak and Brooks both had a good attitude, smiling brightly and waving at fans in the crowd.

Individual event competitions continue through the Games.
