This week we chat with one of our favorite gymnasts, Sho Nakamori. He made the national team at 12 and lived through both personal tragedies and injuries more common in car accidents than gymnastics, before reaching his peak.
His experiences as a gymnast, the son of Japanese gymnasts and a grassroots contributor to the community have always fascinated us. He proved to be as much of a renaissance man as we had imagined!
He’s traveling through Japan right now, follow his adventures on Twitter.
Sho’s working for Google. On the Google Glass project, I believe.
No doubt he’s already tested prototypes on the Gymnastics apparatus.
And Sho’s a judge. Look for him on Pommels at J.O. Nationals. … He’ll be the one wearing the odd looking glasses.
