The World Champion is normally not given nearly as much credit as he deserves for excellent execution.
… But since he FELL on Horizontal Bar, last routine, after the USA had already finished competing — we need look closely at that routine’s score.
It ended up only enough to barely edge the USA in team:
Japan – 273.093
United States – 273.083
In the bad old days judges, especially women’s judges, manipulated the very last score to be posted to decide medals. Many will be suspicious that happened this time.
Video to come …
Frame-by-frame, it’s nearly impossible to deduct Kohei.
