University of Michigan alum Sam Mikulak, who spoke with NBC 25 and Fox 66's Sadie Hughes before heading to Rio, finished in 7th in the Men's Gymnastics Individual All-Around Final on Wednesday.

Just a couple days after Team USA finished a disappointing fifth overall, Mikulak started slow (19th at one point) but came on strong at the end for the 7th place finish. Kochei Uchimura won the gold medal, with no American finishing in the top three.

Mikulak will compete in the individual final in the floor and high bar later this weekend.
