Oklahoma sophomore Yul Moldauer came from behind to take the Winter Cup title Saturday evening in Las Vegas over Stanford's Akash Modi.

Oklahoma sophomore Yul Moldauer came from behind to take the Winter Cup title Saturday evening in Las Vegas.

Moldauer came into the second night of competition with a 1.45 deficit behind Akash Modi (Stanford), who led after Thursday's competition. Moldauer, who had fallen off pommel horse on Thursday, hit Saturday for 14.50. He added scores of 15.00 on still rings and parallel bars that offset his 13.00 on high bar. Moldauer's combined total of 171.75 put him ahead of Modi (171.05). Oklahoma's Allan Bower, who had been tied with Moldauer after Thursday, finished third (169.90).

The USOTC's Donnell Whittenburg (167.45) and Donothan Bailey (166.00) and Stanford's Robert Neff (163.95) repeated their rankings from Thursday, finishing fourth, fifth and sixth, respectively,

In 2016, Moldauer finished fifth all-around at the U.S. Winter Cup, the P&G (U.S._ Championships and the U.S. Olympic Trials. In Las Vegas, he also added individual titles on still rings and parallel bars. Event titles were determined by two-day totals.

Eddie Penev (USOTC) won floor exercise and Anthony McCallum (Michigan) took the vault title. 2016 Olympians Alex Naddour (pommel horse) and the USOTC's Chris Brooks (high bar) each won an event.

Moldauer and Modi will compete at the American Cup, to be held March 4 in Newark, N.J. Two-time Olympian Sam Mikulak, who injured his Achilles' tendon on floor exercise on Thursday, has been forced to withdraw from the event, the first of the FIG's all-around World Cup series in 2017.

The U.S. Winter Cup is held as a men's reranking competition for the 15-member senior national team. The top four all-around gymnasts automatically make the team, as do the members of the 2016 Olympic squad, including alternates. Bailey, Neff, Penev, Grant Breckenridge (Stanford), Hunter Justus (Oklahoma), Sean Melton (Ohio State) and Kanji Oyama (Oklahoma) were also named to the national team.
