BEIJING -- An Olympic medal on the pommel horse is not out of the grasp of Alexander Artemev, who qualified for the finals in that event. But now Artemev hopes to achieve something more than winning a single event. He'd like to help the U.S. win a men's gymnastics team medal. Performing without feeling pressure and with five teammates who think they are being underestimated, Artemev flew through six routines Saturday as if he were back in his gym in Colorado with his father and coach, Vladimir, telling him that things will be fine.

PHILADELPHIA -- He has a sore knee, sore ankle and sore back. "The trifecta," Justin Spring said. Spring, 24, of Burke, Va., energized the crowd at the Wachovia Center in spite of the pain and brought tears to the eyes of his coach Thursday night with a gritty performance in the first round of the U.S. men's gymnastics Olympic trials. Spring made a last-minute decision to compete on floor exercise as well as doing planned routines on high bar, still rings, vault and parallel bars.

PHILADELPHIA -- Now, comes the hard part. Paul Hamm and Jonathan Horton were named to the U.S. men's Olympic gymnastics team Saturday, appropriate nods to the injured Hamm's golden resume and Horton's impressive performances at the national championships and Olympic trials. USA Gymnastics men's program committee today will name four team members and up to three alternates or, to buy time to consider all the what-ifs, will announce six or seven names and leave their roles open until July 1.

SAN JOSE -- Paul Hamm took more than two years off from competition after winning the all-around gymnastics gold medal in a controversial decision at the Athens Olympics. Watching his daring release moves on the horizontal bar, powerful vault and precise parallel bars routine Friday at the Pacific Rim championships, it seemed as though he never left. Hamm, 25, overcame a slip off the pommel horse to win the all-around title and lead the U.S. men to victory at San Jose State's Event Center.

SAN JOSE -- It was not a triumphant return to competition for gymnastics twins Paul and Morgan Hamm on Wednesday night at the Visa Championships, the U.S. national team championships. For the first time since Paul Hamm won the Olympic all-around gold medal in Athens and Paul and Morgan keyed the U.S. to a team silver medal, the 24-year-olds resumed competition. They participated on only two of the six apparatus, floor exercise and the pommel horse.

SAN JOSE -- While the U.S. women seem knee-deep in potential Olympic medalists, the U.S. male gymnasts have taken a whack in the knees in international competition over the last year. The group that won a team silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics and produced all-around gold medalist Paul Hamm finished a dismal 13th at last year's world championships, and behind Puerto Rico and Brazil at last month's Pan American Games.

It's too soon.' When I came to Beijing, my mom told me to just come and have a good time. I told her I was going to win an all-around medal," Horton said. "She looked at me like I was crazy."
