Jacob Dalton, Our Gymnastic Dream

By: Joe Thompson

The 2011 Winter Cup Challenge is happening in Las Vegas right now, and world team member Jake Dalton of Reno, Nevada, leads the all-around after preliminary competition. According to the USA Gymnastics website, Dalton, who competes for the University of Oklahoma, posted an 88.100 in the first day of all-around competition, recording the top score on floor exercise (15.900).

Okay, we have no idea what that means. But we reader forwarded us a video of him, we fell in love with his deadly face-body combo pack, and figured you would as well.

The competition began yesterday, February 3, and concludes with finals on Saturday, February 5. We've got some video of Dalton in action, as well as a small interview from the Challenge with equally cute David Durante.
