Manrique Larduet – one of the best in the world

Kohei Uchimura (and especially those chasing him) may have a bit more competition in Glasgow from an unexpected place – Cuba. Manrique Larduet … competed in all six events for a cumulative D score of close to 39 – which puts him squarely in contention for a podium spot in Glasgow if he hits. …
