Gymnastics News – Uchimura injured?

  • 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 some articles 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. 
  • Dutch gymnast and Queen of Turns on Beam Sanne Wevers definitely injured her ankle in training last week. As it will take her six weeks to recover, she won’t have a chance to make the team for Worlds which will be announced September 14th.
  • Former gymnast and Olympic gold medalist from Italy, Igor Cassina, will teach physical education as a professor in New York for at least one year.
  • And as you already know: The nominative registrations for the World Championships are on the FIG website.

    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 🙂
