Wilson works back into title contention
MILWAUKEE -- Five seconds into the evening, Blaine Wilson looked all washed up. By night's end, he was back in contention for his sixth national title.
Overcoming an embarrassing slip during his first pass on the pommel horse, Wilson rallied Friday night to finish in third place after the preliminaries of the men's U.S. Gymnastics Championships. With 55.775 points, Wilson finished 1.275 behind first-place Paul Hamm, last year's champion and one of the favorites, along with Wilson, to win it all again.
Results from the finals Sunday will be combined with Friday night's scores. The top two will earn spots on the World Championship team.
