Kohei will not compete Worlds 2019

As many had assumed, Kohei Uchimura has withdrawn from next week’s All-Japan Artistic Gymnastics Apparatus Championships where he was qualified for the horizontal bar final.

That event was his last shot at selection for the Japanese team … 

Some nations might put him on the team anyway, despite their selection process, but it seems highly unlikely that the King or Mai Murakami (who missed the NHK Cup due to injury) will compete in Stuttgart.

The Japanese men have already qualified a full team to the Olympics. Worlds this year will be a chance to test their younger gymnasts.
