Brandon Wynn took third place all-around at the 2012 Winter Cup in Las Vegas, NV, with a final score of 175.200. This third place finish makes him a strong contender for the 2012 Olympic team, which he is currently training for.
The reigning two-time U.S. National Champion on still rings also finished first on the event, as well as third on the parallel bars. In addition, Brandon was named to the 2012 U.S. National Gymnastics Team. (read more)
A picture that OSU alum and champion gymnast Brandon Wynn posted of himself on Twitter couldn’t be more appropriate: he is wearing a T-shirt bearing the graphic of a license plate that reads ‘GR8 TAN.’ Fresh off of a gold medal win on the still rings at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he spent a few extra days relaxing and enjoying the weather, Wynn needn’t worry that the quality of his tan will falter, as he has just become one of three new “Tan-bassadors” for tanning salon franchise Hollywood Tans.
“While many in the indoor tanning industry have flocked to reality TV stars for endorsements, Hollywood Tans’ approach is based on real people who are relatable and motivational,” said Lewis Shender, CEO of Hollywood Tans Group in a recent press release.
“A wide-range of people tan at Hollywood Tans for a variety of reasons,” said Shender, “and our new Tan-bassadors exemplify that diversity and individuality.”
Wynn, an OSU alum who will graduate with a degree in finance, has been playfully and respectfully dubbed, “Lord of the Rings” for his accomplishments as a gymnast; he has won two consecutive NCAA still rings titles, the 2010 and 2011 U.S. Championship crown for the same event and he represented the U.S. at the 2010 World Championship in the Netherlands. He is a prominent enough athlete that discussions of his abilities command their own sections on websites dedicated to gymnastics coaching and fandom.

One of Wynn’s proudest accomplishments is winning the Gold Medal at the 2011 Pan-American Games. His gymnastics career started at age seven and has awarded him not just success at OSU and with Hollywood Tans: he is currently training to be a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, which requires hitting the gym twice a day, six days a week alongside the numerous practices in preparation for the tryouts in June.
