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.

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.
