After the Japanese men’s national gymnastics team came to the Chinese National Gymnastics Training Center in Beijing for a joint training camp with the Chinese National Team last month, the Chinese men flew to Japan last week for another joint training session in Japan. The camp began on February 11th and lasted six days. …
Xiao Ruoteng, current two-time World Champion, stated the environment was very friendly since all the athletes were familiar with each other:
“I can tell the Japanese are very advanced on apparatus like floor, they also have some great training drills.
However, in terms of the gymnastics venues and accommodations, the Chinese team is better.
We aren’t talking too much with each other, mostly because we want to observe each other. The Japanese are all in good shape, which is about what we expected. Uchimura still looks like he’s affected by his injury, but he’s mostly recovered.”
