Dalton Reclaims Winter Cup Title
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Olympic floor exercise finalist Jake Dalton (Oklahoma) recaptured the all-around title as the U.S. Winter Cup Challenge concluded Saturday evening in Las Vegas.

Olympic floor exercise finalist Jake Dalton (Oklahoma) recaptured the all-around title as the U.S. Winter Cup Challenge concluded Saturday evening in Las Vegas.

Dalton, who previously won the Winter Cup in 2011, snatched victory on Saturday on the final event. The top four gymnasts from Thursday's preliminaries — Adrian de los Angeles (Michigan) led Dalton, Danell Leyva (Universal) and Eddie Penev (Stanford) — sat in the same order after five of the six events in Saturday's finals.

Dalton's 14.500 on high bar in the last rotation, however, was enough to move past de los Angeles and reclaim victory.

"I had a few mistakes in night one, so it was nice to clean up a few things tonight," said Dalton, who improved his total by more than 2 points on the second night. "Coming away with the win is always good. It gives me a little more confidence and helps me get ready for the American Cup. Everything kind of goes crazy after the Olympics, so it's great to be able to get back into the same cycle."

Dalton won floor exercise and still rings, while Levya won parallel bars and high bar. Michael Newburger (Ohio State) won pommel horse and Penev was the top vaulter. Penev switched his affiliation to the U.S. last year, after several years of competing for his native Bulgaria.

Dalton and Leyva were reaffirmed as members of the U.S. national team along with Olympic teammates Jonathan Horton, Sam Mikulak and John Orozco (all absent with various injuries). Following the competition, de los Angeles, Paul Ruggeri (U.S. Gymnastics Development Center), Sean Melton (U.S. Olympic Training Center), Akash Modi (Monmouth), Brandon Wynn (Ohio State University), Glen Ishino (Cal-Berkeley) and Penev were named to the U.S. national team, along with U.S. Olympic team alternates Chris Brooks, Steven Legendre and Alex Naddour.
