When Alex Naddour won the bronze medal for pommel horse in the 2016 Olympics this past Sunday, he shattered a 32-year pommel horse drought for Team USA.
According to the Team USA website:
Naddour’s medal was the first for a U.S. male gymnast in an event final since Jonathan Horton won the silver medal on the horizontal bar at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Danell Leyva earned bronze in the all-around in London. Naddour scored the first pommel horse medal for Team USA since Peter Vidmar and Tim Daggett, now the NBC commentator, won gold and bronze at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.”
He also brought a bit of fame to the Realtor community and his home state of Arizona.
While Olympic training occupied a lot of Naddour’s time (it takes a lot of focus and dedication to lock in the bronze), when he isn’t at the gym or tending to his infant daughter, he is dabbling in real estate.
As confirmed by the National Association of Realtors, Naddour is an official member of the association.

Even amidst all his Olympic training, he managed to still make time for his real estate business Arizona Elite Properties and has one active listing on his site, as if he wasn’t already doing enough.
Here are a handful go proud tweets congratulating him on his victory. The first one is from Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.
