John Orozco is currently a member of the US Senior National team and a 2012 U.S. Olympian. He trains at the USOTC under coach Vitaly Marinich.
John reached a milestone in his career when he became the U.S. Senior National Champion at the 2012 Visa Championships. Trailing defending champ Danell Leyva by .05 after day one, John made up the difference on day two and narrowly came up with the win. Orozco also won medals on high bar (2nd), pommel horse (3rd), rings (3rd) and parallel bars (3rd). Orozco qualified to the 2012 Olympic Trials in San Jose, where he finished second to Leyva, but placed well enough on individual events to earn an automatic berth to London.
Orozco will serve as a leader for the U.S. men in London, in what many believe is the most talented U.S. men's team in years. Orozco is a contender for team and all-around medals, and is particularly strong on high bar.
John was a member of the 2011 US Men's World Team that competed in Tokyo, Japan. The US men placed 3rd in the team final, missing the silver medal by only .01. Additionally, John placed 5th in the all around final and qualified to the high bar final.
At the 2012 Winter Cup Challenge, John won the all around and parallel bars titles, tied for the high bar title, placed 2nd on pommel horse, 4th on floor and tied for 7th on rings. John placed 5th all around at the 2012 American Cup.
As a senior, John competed at the 2011 Visa Championships where he placed 4th on Rings with a combined score of 30.05, 2nd on Parallel Bars (31.45), tied for 3rd on High Bar (30.5) and placed 3rd on Pommel Horse (29.1) and in the All Around (180.5).
At the 2007 Visa Championships, he was the All Around, Rings, Parallel Bars and High Bar champion. In 2008, he was the All Around, Parallel Bars and High Bar champion and tied for 1st on Vault. In 2009, he won the All Around and every event except for Vault. Even at a comparatively young age, John has continued to be a strong force for the US men's team. John has been selected to represent the US in international competition since 2007- most recently being the 2010 Pacific Rim Championships, where he won the All Around, and the 2011 Japan Cup.
