At the U.S. Olympic gymnastics trials, Sam Mikulak, a Corona del Mar High alum, gained more notoriety, especially scoring the highest in the all-around Thursday. Cheers for Mikulak could be heard throughout the HP Pavilion in San Jose, especially from Team Sam, a group of fans supporting Mikulak. Team Sam did not have many opportunities to cheer during the men's finals Saturday. Mikulak, who had been third in the overall standings, competed only in the pommel horse because of a sprained left ankle from his performance on Thursday.

If one of your goals for throwing a birthday party for kids is to tire the tots out, Kyle Gayner's mobile gymnastics could be the perfect entertainment. "I go everywhere," said Gayner, who travels to locations such as schools and birthday parties, while training kids on the bars, vault, trampoline and balance beam, and incorporating face painting and balloon making. "I do not coach serious, competitive gymnastics," she added. "My work is with the little guys and give them strictly a lot of love, guidance, motivation and fun. That's how I teach.
