NORMAN – After taking team gold at the Guimaraes International Tournament in Guimaraes, Portugal, on Saturday, the all-Sooner United States team claimed four of the six event titles in the individual finals on Sunday.

Sophomore Yul Moldauer won the event titles on rings and parallel bars and placed second on pommel horse. Adding two more individual titles to the Team USA haul, former Sooner Kanji Oyama claimed event titles on vault and high bar. Oyama also posted the best all-around score of the competition during team finals on Sunday, but no all-around title was awarded. Former Sooner Allan Bower was solid on the day. He finished second on floor.

The Sooner trio teamed up to post a team score of 164.650 Saturday. That total was good enough for first place and was more than 10 points clear of second-place Norway.
