Okay, I have a question: Did Kohei Uchimura get injured? First, I read a short comment on STOI! about a sprained ankle, then I did a little research in the internet and found somearticles in Japanes about the topic but as the translation is terrible I’m not sure what it actually says: Uchimura injured his right ankle several on August 10th and avoided to compete on floor and vault but he’ll recover until Worlds?!?
On YouTube I found a video of a promotional event for the World Championships in Tokyo. Uchimura and Tsurumi did some outdoor-gymnastics and helped some kids to get on the beam or high bar.
If Uchimura is injured the Japanese are keeping it quiet! It does sound like he got some sort of injury and that’s why he decided to do 4 of 6 pieces. Perhaps not doing floor & vault. Interesting!!! thanks for posting 🙂
