NORMAN – Wrapping up his first appearance at the World Championships, University of Oklahoma junior Yul Moldauer added one more career honor Saturday afternoon in Montreal.
Taking center stage in the event finals, Moldauer scored 14.500 on floor exercise to earn the bronze medal.
The Arvada, Colo., native became the first American to medal in the event since former Sooner Jake Dalton took the silver medal in 2013.
“What a thrill to watch Yul earn the bronze medal on floor exercise,” OU head coach Mark Williams said. “It is an incredible accomplishment and a tremendous performance all around at this World Championships.”
Along with his bronze medal, Moldauer also finished seventh in the all-around finals Thursday night.
Also competing in the event finals, OU alumnus Alex Naddour placed fourth on the pommel horse with a score of 14.750, the highest finish in the event for an American since Alexander Artemev in 2006.
