Jonathan Horton (Houston, Texas) won the silver medal in the men's high bar in the gymnastics individual event finals held Tuesday evening at the National Indoor Stadium.

Horton scored a 16.175, only 0.025 behind the 16.200 scored by Zou Kai of China to take the gold. The bronze medal was won by Fabian Hambuechen of Germany with a 15.875.

The U.S. gymnastics team closes out the 2008 Olympic Games with a total of 10 medals won (two gold, six silver, 2 bronze), the four best medal haul at a single Olympic Games and the top total at an Olympic Games outside the United States. The most was 20 at the 1904 St. Louis Olympic Games, followed by the 16 each won at the 1932 and 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.
