Uchimura at the 4th Olympics; will do 3.0 D-scores on 5 events, shooting for 10s

Okay that last part of the title is a lie.

But wouldn’t it be awesome? I would love to see the artistry.

So he’s going as a high bar specialist.

out of here lol GIF

Is he only doing high bar? I recently was going through vault videos and it’s absurd how many different vaults he did

It does seem like he is only doing HB… I do wish he would do at least PB and I hope he hits and wins HB though!

It’s so sad he won’t have a hometown crowd to take a final bow in front of.

The funny thing, to me, is that none of these vaults had incredible blocks. His position on the table was always a little off.

Yurchenko 2.5

Li Xiaopeng, which is where his World titles stopped. He did come back AA the next year, but… not at Worlds.

Kas Full (not particularly challenging. Pretty much every NCAA guy can do this vault.)

I feel like I remember him doing a Randi also. But I could not find it. Help?

Is he actually doing the other 5 events?

Would he just get two perd on every event other than HB anyway?

Oh I think his blocks are great. Not as much on the Kas heh. But the Yurchenko is great. You could def deduct .2 w the shoulder angle and alignment/pretwist, but I don’t even see a leg separation in the preflight.

Oh my god. I could almost forgive his hairdo and love him nevertheless
