Orlando, Florida – July 13, 2021 – Following his phenomenal performance posting the second-best overall score at the 2021 US Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials last month, the 2017 US National Champion, 3-time American Cup all-around titles, the World medalist and NCAA record holder Yul Moldauer has fulfilled his lifelong dream of attending the Olympics. The accomplished artistic gymnast will compete as a member of the United States Men’s Gymnastics Team at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics which runs from Friday July 23 through Sunday August 8.
Yul Moldauer will join fellow talent Sam Mikulak, Brody Malone and Shane Wiskus to complete the four-person US Olympic men’s gymnastics team, in addition to “plus one” selection spot holder Alec Yoder.
“Being part of the team is a special moment not only for me, but for all those who have helped me and who have been on this long journey with me,” says Yul Moldauer. “From elementary school to middle school, through all the coaches, through all the teammates, through my family and through my fans… It’s a team effort, and everyone has made a huge impact. Being part of the team proves that if you want to achieve a goal, you can do it. It takes time, it takes lows, it takes highs, but you also have to embrace the grind. No matter who you are or where you come from, embrace the grind and always believe. Let’s go to Team USA.
Moldauer, 24, was born in Seoul, South Korea and adopted by American parents before the age of one. He grew up in Arvada, Colorado with three siblings, and he got his start in gymnastics at the age of seven when a local gym offered a free trial. When he was nine, he was on the National Junior Team. After leading the University of Oklahoma to three straight National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championships, Moldauer graduated last year. He was only the second first year in the NCAA – the highest athletic division in American universities – to win the national title in the all-around.
Yul is trained by Alexander Artemev, Vladimir Artemev and Irina Bendassova.
“We are delighted to see Yul make one of his childhood dreams come true,” said Kerry Adderly, Talent Manager at GymCrew. “Yul is one of the most humble athletes we have met. For him to have this opportunity to compete on the biggest and brightest stage in the world, we couldn’t be more excited for him and everyone who has supported him on his journey up to this point. He is a star in the making.
