Thanks Grace.

will Kenzo compete Worlds?

My guess is that our World Floor Champion will not be named to the 2014 Team. But that Japan will have a long range plan to put him on the Rio Team.

Japan simply has too many strong all-arounders who can contribute more to the Team score.

2) How old was he when he learned his now famous quad twist? 14. “I am small and light, so my twisting skill is better than multiple salto skill.”

10) Can Japan win the team title at the 2014 Nanning World Championships? “I can’t think about the result before I become a team member.”
