Men’s Olympic Podium training

UPDATES from Tokyo:

Astonishingly, Dalaloyan says he will be the 4th man on floor and vault in qualifying. Will only compete if one of the three ahead has a problem. We’d assumed he’d not be doing either leg event because of his recent Achilles injury. (Read an interview from Tokyo.)

David Rumbutis (SWE) warmed up quad twist on FX.

A lot of men had trouble landing their HUGE vaults. The Spring Board was a concern for some. But Shek Wai-hung  (HNG) looks ready to medal.

The weak apparatus for host Japan is Rings. Not much difficulty.

As always, it’s a mistake to read too much into MAG podium training. Many gymnasts save their 100% efforts for the competition.
