Don't Miss the Gophers Last Home Meet!
The accolades keep coming in for the Gophers after Saturday’s victory over No. 5 Illinois. The CGA has named Tristan Duran the national Gymnast of the Week and Shane Wiskus the national Rookie of the Week.
Duran and Wiskus both competed all-around on Saturday. Duran set a career high 81.350 on the all-around and was clutch down the stretch winning the final two events of the afternoon, parallel bars and high bar. He scored a 14.450 on p-bars and a 13.850 on high bar. The high bar score ended up making a huge difference as the meet literally came down to the last score.
Wiskus adds to an already impressive week. He was named the B1G Co-Gymnast of the Week and the Freshman of the Week yesterday. He took three podium finishes including a dominant win on floor with a career high 14.700. His 14.400 late in the day on p-bars came up big in the Minnesota win. He won the all-around title for the third time this season with an 82.500.
This is the second time Wiskus has been honored by the CGA this year and the first time ever for Duran.
Both Duran and Wiskus are headed to the USA Gymnastics Winter Cup in Las Vegas, Nev. on Feb. 15 and Feb. 17 and will compete all-around.
