LONDON (AP)

Danell Leyva will anchor the U.S. men's gymnastics team in Monday's Olympic team final.

Leyva will compete in four of the six events and serve as the last man up for the U.S. on high bar, the team's final event.

The U.S. topped qualifying Saturday, but scores are reset in the finals. Teams send out three gymnasts for each event, and all three scores count.

National champion John Orozco will do everything but floor exercise for the U.S., while Sam Mikulak will compete on floor, still rings, pommel horse and parallel bars.

Jake Dalton will perform on rings, vault and floor, with two-time Olympic medalist Jonathan Horton working on rings and high bar.

The U.S. is searching for its first team gold since Los Angeles in 1984.
