2012: Year of Louis Smith

One of Uncle Tim’s best posts details 2012 for one of our most entertaining athletes.

2012: The Year in Louis Smith

Louis lost the Olympic Gold medal in a tie breaker to Krisztián Berki. Let’s compare those two routines again.

Berki competes at 14:40. Louis last at 23:15.

Berki wins, in my opinion. More extended swing. Far better single leg and handstand work.

No need to tie those two routines.

One thought on “2012: Year of Louis Smith”

  1. I’ve always thought Berki had really nice form– it is strange that they wound up tied– Berki was better. His style is so nice too.
