All Japan Champ Kakeru Tanigawa

12/12 clean, impressive routines.

1. Kakeru Tanigawa 172.496
2. Kenzo Shirai 172.164
3. Kohei Uchimura 171.664


It had to happen, sooner or later. Kohei has finally lost an AA competition, the first since 2008.

At 19 years and two months, Tanigawa became Japan’s youngest national champion. …

“I still can’t believe it. Uchimura-san had been Japan’s top gymnast and I’ve respected him so I didn’t think I can beat him,” Tanigawa said.
