Congratulations Netherlands.

Coaches often say ANYTHING can happen in finals.

It did.

Epke missed one hand on Kovacs regrasp … and somehow hung on to the one arm Giant.

Hidetaka Miyachi was my most anticipated routine (6.700). He caught the layout Bretschneieder. It will be named for him. Then fell on his second release – Bretschneieder. What a shame. I hope Japan puts him on the World Cup circuit as a specialist. He could be #1 on this apparatus by Tokyo.

It looked like Randy Leru would the one headed back to Cuba with a medal, not Manrique. But Randy fell on dismount. Did the mat move on him?
