COLUMBUS, Ohio – The College Gymnastics Association released its weekly men’s gymnastics awards on Wednesday. Senior Jesse Tyndall was named CGA Gymnast of the Week following his performance against Michigan on Saturday. He is the first Buckeye to claim CGA Gymnast of the Week this season as Trevor Cummings was previously named CGA Specialist of the Week on Jan. 26. Tyndall was also named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week on Monday.
Tyndall led Ohio State to a decisive 403.600-398.100 victory over a previously undefeated Michigan team on Saturday, winning both the all-around competition and the parallel bars. Tyndall’s 81.050 in the all-around makes him one of three individuals in the country to reach 81 points in the all-around this season. His 13.800 on parallel bars was a season-best as he captured the event win in the anchor spot.
Tyndall also recorded a season-high 14.150 on floor, a career-high 13.450 on pommel horse and a season-high 13.950 on vault. This is his first win of the season on both parallel bars and in the all-around, bringing his season total to four wins.
