European Championships 2010 – Men

Why the hell was the arena in Birmingham so empty? Barely one-third of the seats were taken during event finals… 😦

Anyways, Gymnastics Examiner, The All-Around (they are also doing an excellent job on facebook!), UEG among others doing a really great job reporting about the European Championships. (There’s a German liveticker, too: men / women)

RussianCup2009 has almost all of the EF routines on YouTube (embedding disabled). You should watch Matthias Fahrig’s gold-medal winning floor routine (and his impressive first tumbling: front double twisting into double front) here. Epke Zonderland’s silver-medal winning high bar routine (Kovacs into Kolman) here & Jordan Jovtchev’s bronze-medal winning still rings routine here – his grey hair really seem even more grey. Unfortunately no routines from the Russians… I really missed them.

And now it’s time for a big CONGRATULATIONS!! The German team is really very strong – especially Matthias Fahrig, Philipp Boy & Marcel Nguyen do their best to take over Fabian Hambüchen‘s position as the gymnastics superstar. Good job, Matthias, Philipp, Eugen, Marcel and Fabian!

Results: TeamFloor / Pommel Horse / Still Rings / Vault / Parallel Bars / High Bar

I’m really looking forward to the women’s competition & (thank God!) the Russians could come!! 🙂

UPDATE: BGTV has some good interviews with the gymnasts!
