Alex Naddour Wins Bronze Medal For Team USA on Pommel Horse In Rio!

Alex Naddour is all smiles next to Team GB’s Max Whitlock and Louis Smith after winning the bronze medal on the pommel horse during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Sunday (August 14) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 25-year-old gymnast broke Team USA’s medal drought for these Games and the Pommel horse, where a medal hasn’t been won since 1984.

“The tears were about my family, what they’ve sacrificed to put me at the top,” Alex shared with press after the medal ceremony.

Earlier in the day, Sam Mikulak and Jake Dalton competed on the floor exercise event, but failed to medal. Max also won a gold medal in that competition as well.

Brazil’s Diego Hypolito and Arthur Mariano (aka Arthur Nory, Simone Biles‘ “Brazilian boyfriend”) won silver and bronze in the floor final.
