Oleg v Kohei

I’ve not yet had a chance to go back and analyze all 12 routines from the AA Olympic final. Many others have and most feel the ranking was correct.

Gennady Sartinskiy (Oleg’s coach) feels the judging and end result were fair.

Verniaiev Uchimura

Kohei:

Uchimura trailed Oleg Verniaiev of Ukraine by 0.901 points heading into the final apparatus — the high bar — but the six-time world champion kept his nerve while Verniaiev stumbled to hand Uchimura the gold with a score of 92.365. …

“I knew it would come down to the high bar. My performance was good, so if I had lost I wouldn’t have had any regrets. …

Uchimura successfully defends all-around title

It was an Olympic AA we’ll never forget. Quite possibly the best ever in Men’s Gymnastics.

Uchimura will be 31 when Tokyo hosts the 2020 Olympics. He’ll try to continue through that meet, perhaps as a specialist.

NBC started Men’s gymnastics at 11:37 p.m. The gold medal was decided at 12:19 a.m. If you missed it, here’s the FIG write up – Long live the ‘King’: Kohei Uchimura continues reign with second Olympic All-around gold
