I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am to watch the Olympics this year, especially my favorite sport - Men’s Gymnastics. What makes this particular Olympics so appealing is that it is in London.... oh wait, No, that’s not it. Actually, I want to watch the Men’s Gymnastics this year because we will be witnessing one of the greats compete on a world stage in the likes of Michael Jordan but of Men’s Gymnastics. His name is Kohei Uchimura - a 23 year old, 5’3” 119 lb Gymnast from Japan. Uchimura has won the last 3 world championships in the all around competition and got a silver at the last olympics in Beijing after a couple of falls on the Pommel Horse. What makes Uchimura so exciting is that not only is his level of difficulty super high, but he makes it look effortless. He has no weak events, he rarely breaks form, his difficulty level and execution is off the charts, and that is why HE is MY PICK for the Gold in the all around in London.
Of course I’m rooting for the US to win the team competition, but at the same time, I can’t wait to watch a legend at work. The Japanese team will give the US some very stiff competition. Which leads me to my question for you today - what do you think is the coolest event to watch in Men’s Gymnastics? My personal fav is high bar, but leave me a comment below and let me know what you think. Make sure you guys watch the Men’s Gymnastics in the London Olympics and let me know your thoughts. Did Uchimura live up to your expectations to be named THE Best of all time? And if not, Who is?
