Epke Zonderland and the Orangutan

March 7, 2011

Epke Zonderland somehow looks like he’s always smiling and having a good time. Not in the picture above but it’s nevertheless a nice portrait of the gymnast who wants a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games. And guess on which apparatus! 🙂

Here are three videos. The first shows him in the zoo, where he performs on the PB next to an orangutan. Yes, that’s right, next to an orangutan! The second is a very slow-motion video of Zonderland on the HB. And a the third coverage of his training (2008). Enjoy!
