He led the Olympic team to a fifth-place finish and placed 11th all-around individually.
After graduating from Ohio State, Wilson continued competed internationally. He won his fifth straight US national all-around title in 2000, then topped the standings at the 2000 Olympic Trials again.

In 2003, Wilson won his fifth national title on rings, and earned a silver medal with the US team at the world championships.
Wilson made his third Olympic team in 2004, and accomplished a long-awaited goal: the US men followed up their world silver with an Olympic one, and with it, Wilson earned his first Olympic medal.
