NORMAN — University of Oklahoma men’s gymnastics alumnus and two-time Olympic medalist Jonathan Horton was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame this weekend during a ceremony at the 2022 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Tampa, Fla.
One of the most decorated gymnastics in U.S. men’s gymnastics history, Horton was a six-time individual NCAA champion and 18-time All-American at OU, helping the Sooners to three NCAA titles throughout his time in Norman.
On the national and international level, Horton was a two-time Olympian (2008, ’12), winning a pair of medals for the U.S. The Cypress, Texas, product took home a silver medal on high bar in 2008 and helped the U.S. men to a bronze-medal finish at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2012, Horton finished sixth on high bar and was part of a fifth-place team finish for the U.S. in London.
Additionally, Horton holds two World Championships medals, four U.S. titles and an Olympic Trials all-around title. As a Sooner, Horton is tied with fellow Olympian Yul Moldauer for the program record with his 18 All-America honors and is second in program history with his six individual titles. Horton won the NCAA all-around, floor and still rings crowns in 2006, the floor national title in 2007 and rings his senior season in 2008.
