Over 2 days, the first being All Japan Championships.  I’d say the King is ready for Rio.

Amanda Turner:

After silver medals the past two Olympics, the Japanese are aiming to recapture the Olympic team title they last won in 2004. The NHK results show a Japanese team of the top five gymnasts will be tough to beat; calculating the top three scores on each event Thursday results in a team score of 278.45 — nearly than 8 points higher than the winning 270.818 that Japan scored in the Glasgow team final.

Uchimura Captures 8th Straight NHK Cup

Uchimura had already been named to the Olympic team. Kato was added based on this result. The rest of the team is yet to be named.
