Written by Greg

The US will be represented in Tokyo by Stanford's Brody Malone, former Michigan star Sam Mikulak, former OU star Yul Moldauer, Minnesota's Shane Wiskus and former Ohio State star Alec Yoder (event specialist).   Five replacement althletes were named:  Michigan's Cameron Bock, Former OU Sooner Allan Bower, Stanford's Brandon Briones, Illini alum Alex Diab and former Stanford star Akash Modi.   

During the second day of competition, Brody Malone marked an easy win with a 171.6 score.  Moldauer secured his spot by placing second at 168.6, and by placing in the top 3 on at least three events (he did on four).   After those two were selected, a criteria that included the top performing team combinations produced the selections.  Wiskus was 3rd at 168.15, with Mikulak 4th at 166.75.  Briones was just behind at 166.7.  He was followed by Modi, Bower, Michigan's Paul Juda, Stanford's Riley Loos and then Bock.  Bock earned a selection as he placed in the top five on three events.  Yoder excelled on the PH both days, with Diab not far behind.
