UPDATE: Um, make that six Sooners going to London! OU senior Brittany Borman finished first in the javelin with a personal record throw of 201 feet, 9 inches. Congrats Brittany!!!

The Oklahoma Sooners men's gymnastics program made a substantial statement this weekend further cementing their position as one of the top programs in the country. Sunday afternoon, Jonathan Horton (2005-08) and junior Jake Dalton were officially named to the five-man squad while Chris Brooks (2006-09), Steven Legendre (2008-11) and Alex Naddour (2010-11) were named the three alternates.

The five will join another Sooner on the U.S. Olympic squad, Tia Brooks who qualified in the shot put earlier in the weekend.

Congratulations to all the Sooners who will be representing OU and their country in London! There truly is Only One Oklahoma!!!
