Taqiy made history by winning the Men’s NCAA All-Around title. His gymnastics and life story is very interesting; please take the time to learn about his rise to the top of NCAA Men’s gymnastics while maintaining his commitment to his hometown community.

Taqiy comes from a long line of Oklahoma gymnastics greats.

We congratulate his success and admire his continuing support of the sport through coaching.
