Archive for the ‘Kōhei Uchimura’ Category

August 1, 2012

Kohei Uchimura did not fool anyone by qualifying in ninth place last week for the Olympic men’s all-around event in gymnastics. His competitors knew that he would be the one to beat in the final on Wednesday, and they were right.

Uchimura, the three-time world champion from Japan, took the lead halfway through the competition — then never let it go.

He finished his night on the floor exercise, twisting through the air so quickly during his tumbling passes that he was nothing but a blur. When he was done and his feet finally hit the ground, he walked off with a smile and a wave to the crowd, looking relieved that the contest was over.

Not long after, the gold medal was in his hands and he examined it, as if to make sure he was not dreaming.

Uchimura won with a score of 92.690 points, solidifying himself as one of the best gymnasts in history. Marcel Nguyen of Germany won the silver medal, with 91.031 points. Danell Leyva, who came to the United States from Cuba as a toddler, won the bronze, with 90.698 points.

John Orozco, the other American in the competition, finished eighth after a poor pommel horse routine derailed him.

Both he and Leyva struggled on the pommel horse in men’s team finals on Monday. The United States team had been favored to win a medal – maybe even the gold – but their subpar scores on the pommel horse were part of the reason the team fell short and went home empty-handed.

Leyva, who is 20 and lives in Homestead, Fla., made up for that on Wednesday. On his last event, the horizontal bar, he executed his daring moves so breathtakingly and so smoothly — flying over the bar while flipping and twisting — that the crowd could do nothing but ooh and aah.

After taking a step on his landing, he finally let out the emotion he usually keeps to himself on the competition floor. He looked up, opened his mouth wide and bellowed, “Ah!” for everyone to hear. He hopped to the edge of the floor, pointed to the crowd and spun around, soaking in the applause that rumbled through the arena.

His stepfather and coach, Yin Alvarez – who is known for his wild gesturing and antics while Leyva is competing – was bursting with excitement. Leyva jumped from the floor to him, and they hugged each other hard.

Winning an Olympic medal had been a goal for both of them for years, and now they had finally achieved it, for all the world to see.
