Paul Hamm won the all-around title at a meet in Las Vegas last weekend - his first full-fledged competition since winning Olympic gold in Athens four years ago.

Morgan Hamm is recovering from a torn pectoral muscle. He'll have another chance to make the U.S. squad in April, at a qualifying meet for the national championships.

The nationals will take place May 22-24 in Houston.

A new U-S squad will be named after that and from there, the top-six will be chosen to compete in the Beijing Olympics in August.
