Gymnastics Artistic Men's Parallel Bars Final - Highlights | London 2012 Olympics
 
03:28
Gymnastics Artistic Men's Parallel Bars Final. Gold: Zhe Feng (China) - Silver: Marcel Nguyen (Germany) - Bronze: Hamilton Sabot (France). Highlights from the North Greenwich Arena at the London 2012 Olympic Games, 7 August 2012. Artistic gymnastics was introduced at the very first Olympic Games in 1896 in Athens, and has been present at every edition of the Games since then. At the beginning, it comprised disciplines that are difficult to qualify as "artistic", such as climbing and acrobatics. The foundations of the Olympic gymnastics programme were laid at the 1924 Games in Paris, when the men's apparatus individual and team competitions appeared. In 1928, women were included in the Amsterdam Games. It was not until 1952 that the women's programme was developed, with seven events, and then stabilised at six events as from the 1960 Games in Rome.

Chinese men team is well prepared for the 2011 Tokyo Artistic Gymnastics World Championships 1
 
01:53
The chinese men gymnastic team commenced the closed door training in Jixian for preparing the coming world gymnastics champtionships in Tokyo on 7th - 16th Oct. 2011. =================================== Updated 8 Sept. 2011 The Chinese teams will face a formidable challenge at the upcoming world championships, Oct. 7-16 in Tokyo, team manager Ye Zhennan said. The Chinese men will be represented by Olympic champions Chen Yibing and Teng Haibin, world champions Feng Zhe and Zhang Chenglong, and Lu Bo and Guo Weiyang. World and Olympic champion Zou Kai is the alternate. Olympic champions Jiang Yuyuan and He Kexin headline the women's team, along with Sui Lu, Tan Sixin, Wu Liufang and Yao Jinnan. Huang Qiushuang is the alternate. China's depth allowed it to ground world champions Zhang Hongtao (pommel horse), Yan Mingyong (still rings), Wang Guanyin (parallel bars), and Deng Linlin (balance beam). China was the most successful nation at the 2010 Worlds in Rotterdam. The Chinese men won half the gold medals, but barely held off Japan to win the team title. "Compared with last year's world championships, this year should be a much more severe situation," Ye said. The team lacks strong all-arounders, he noted. In contrast, Japan has several gymnasts able to score above 91 points, including two-time world all-around champion Kohei Uchimura. "Plus they are the hosts, so for China it is indeed a challenge," he said. The Chinese women won the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, but fell to third behind Russia and the U.S. in the Rotterdam team final. The team could win or even finish off the podium due to the strength of Russia, U.S. and Romania, he said. "We do have some advantages on certain events, but that's based on the on-site performance," Ye said. "As long as we prepare whatever we can prepare, adjust the condition of the gymnasts, and do what we can do at the competition, we will be able to get the golds that we deserve." ========================================

China Won gold in Olympic Mens Team Gymnastics in london
 
01:30
Their closest rivals were still on the floor competing when the Chinese whipped out five big gold stars and held them up in the shape of their flag. Why wait? The Chinese won their second straight Olympic title in men's gymnastics and third and in four games in a rout Monday, making fools of everyone who wrote them off after a dismal performance in qualifying. "We don't have any faults. That's our secret to beat the Japanese and to beat everyone," Zhang Chenglong said. "In preliminaries, we had a little bit of faults. But tonight was completely perfect." Well, almost. It took five minutes and a video review to sort out the silver and bronze medalists after Japan questioned the score of three-time world champion Kohei Uchimura on pommel horse, the last routine. Japan jumped from fourth to second after judges revised Uchimura's score, bumping Britain down to bronze and Ukraine off the medals podium. It was the British men's first team medal in a century, and it set off raucous celebrations at the O2 Arena. Even Princes William and Harry joined in. "To win a medal in your home games, I'll take that any day," Kristian Thomas said. "We never actually had the silver in our hands, so there's no real disappointment." Tell that to the Japanese, who were bested by the Chinese yet again. Japan was the runner-up to China in Beijing, as well as at the last four world championships. And unlike last year's world championships, where the Japanese had appeared to close the gap on China, this one wasn't even close. China finished with 275.997 points, more than four points better than Japan. China now has gone eight years without losing at a major competition. "At the very beginning it was fourth for Japan so I couldn't say anything. I couldn't think anything," a somber Uchimura said. "I was thinking, 'It's fourth, it's fourth.' Even after it was changed, I was not too happy." The Americans weren't all that happy, either. Bronze medalists four years ago, they could practically feel their first gold since 1984 after finishing No. 1 in qualifying, with captain Jon Horton jokingly asking if they could claim their prizes. But everyone gets a do-over in team finals, and whatever momentum the Americans had evaporated when Danell Leyva and John Orozco fell on pommel horse, their second event. They wound up fifth, six points behind China and almost two behind Britain. "There's definitely disappointment," Horton said. "We are one of the best teams in the world." But China is in a class by itself. The Chinese have been like playground bullies most of the last decade, sauntering into every competition and scooping up as many gold medals as possible: Team golds at the last five world championships and Olympic titles in Sydney and Beijing, where they won all but one of the men's medals. They probably would have claimed that, too, had they bothered to contend for vault. But with most of the Beijing squad moving on and a rule change putting a premium on all-arounders, China has looked -- dare we say it? -- vulnerable of late. Chen Yibing, a double gold medalist in Beijing, even tried to dampen the expectations this spring, saying it would be "extremely hard" for the Chinese to defend their team title. It didn't get any easier when Teng Haibin, the 2004 gold medalist on pommel horse, dropped out with an injury Thursday and had to be replaced by Guo Weiyang. An abysmal performance in qualifying only furthered the doubt when they finished sixth. Sixth! While everyone else was gleefully expecting the end of a dynasty, China was as cocky and cool as always. "We have the abilities and the skills," said Chen Yibing, one of only two holdovers from the Beijing squad. Asked when he knew his team would win, he said: "After getting up from bed." China doesn't have Japan's stylish elegance, Britain's youthful exuberance or even the Americans' flair for the dramatic. What the Chinese do have, however, is sheer, brute strength. Chen set the tone in the very first event on still rings, where he is the defending Olympic gold medalist and four-time world champion. Simply watching the event makes most folks grab their arms and scream for mercy. He flips from one skill to another with silky smoothness -- at one point lifting his head a bit higher as if to say, "Oh, you liked that one? How about this?" The cables stayed perfectly still when he did a somersault into a handstand, the veins bulging in his arms and neck the only signs of exertion. The Chinese only got better from there, with half their 18 scores at 15.6s or higher. Compare that to Japan, which had five, or the British, who had four. When Zhang's feet slammed into the mat after his pommel horse routine, China's last of the night, he let out a roar the rest of the world will be hearing for four years. While the rest of his teammates broke into their latest victory celebration, Chen leaned against a wall and buried his face in his hands, unable to stop the tears.

China Won gold in Olympic Mens Team Gymnastics in london
 
01:30
Their closest rivals were still on the floor competing when the Chinese whipped out five big gold stars and held them up in the shape of their flag. Why wait? The Chinese won their second straight Olympic title in men's gymnastics and third and in four games in a rout Monday, making fools of everyone who wrote them off after a dismal performance in qualifying. "We don't have any faults. That's our secret to beat the Japanese and to beat everyone," Zhang Chenglong said. "In preliminaries, we had a little bit of faults. But tonight was completely perfect." Well, almost. It took five minutes and a video review to sort out the silver and bronze medalists after Japan questioned the score of three-time world champion Kohei Uchimura on pommel horse, the last routine. Japan jumped from fourth to second after judges revised Uchimura's score, bumping Britain down to bronze and Ukraine off the medals podium. It was the British men's first team medal in a century, and it set off raucous celebrations at the O2 Arena. Even Princes William and Harry joined in. "To win a medal in your home games, I'll take that any day," Kristian Thomas said. "We never actually had the silver in our hands, so there's no real disappointment." Tell that to the Japanese, who were bested by the Chinese yet again. Japan was the runner-up to China in Beijing, as well as at the last four world championships. And unlike last year's world championships, where the Japanese had appeared to close the gap on China, this one wasn't even close. China finished with 275.997 points, more than four points better than Japan. China now has gone eight years without losing at a major competition. "At the very beginning it was fourth for Japan so I couldn't say anything. I couldn't think anything," a somber Uchimura said. "I was thinking, 'It's fourth, it's fourth.' Even after it was changed, I was not too happy." The Americans weren't all that happy, either. Bronze medalists four years ago, they could practically feel their first gold since 1984 after finishing No. 1 in qualifying, with captain Jon Horton jokingly asking if they could claim their prizes. But everyone gets a do-over in team finals, and whatever momentum the Americans had evaporated when Danell Leyva and John Orozco fell on pommel horse, their second event. They wound up fifth, six points behind China and almost two behind Britain. "There's definitely disappointment," Horton said. "We are one of the best teams in the world." But China is in a class by itself. The Chinese have been like playground bullies most of the last decade, sauntering into every competition and scooping up as many gold medals as possible: Team golds at the last five world championships and Olympic titles in Sydney and Beijing, where they won all but one of the men's medals. They probably would have claimed that, too, had they bothered to contend for vault. But with most of the Beijing squad moving on and a rule change putting a premium on all-arounders, China has looked -- dare we say it? -- vulnerable of late. Chen Yibing, a double gold medalist in Beijing, even tried to dampen the expectations this spring, saying it would be "extremely hard" for the Chinese to defend their team title. It didn't get any easier when Teng Haibin, the 2004 gold medalist on pommel horse, dropped out with an injury Thursday and had to be replaced by Guo Weiyang. An abysmal performance in qualifying only furthered the doubt when they finished sixth. Sixth! While everyone else was gleefully expecting the end of a dynasty, China was as cocky and cool as always. "We have the abilities and the skills," said Chen Yibing, one of only two holdovers from the Beijing squad. Asked when he knew his team would win, he said: "After getting up from bed." China doesn't have Japan's stylish elegance, Britain's youthful exuberance or even the Americans' flair for the dramatic. What the Chinese do have, however, is sheer, brute strength. Chen set the tone in the very first event on still rings, where he is the defending Olympic gold medalist and four-time world champion. Simply watching the event makes most folks grab their arms and scream for mercy. He flips from one skill to another with silky smoothness -- at one point lifting his head a bit higher as if to say, "Oh, you liked that one? How about this?" The cables stayed perfectly still when he did a somersault into a handstand, the veins bulging in his arms and neck the only signs of exertion. The Chinese only got better from there, with half their 18 scores at 15.6s or higher. Compare that to Japan, which had five, or the British, who had four. When Zhang's feet slammed into the mat after his pommel horse routine, China's last of the night, he let out a roar the rest of the world will be hearing for four years. While the rest of his teammates broke into their latest victory celebration, Chen leaned against a wall and buried his face in his hands, unable to stop the tears.

Showing just how tough they really are. I've always been surprised this was never posted anywhere on youtube. I'm not sure when this was, but I like Li Xiaopeng's evil laugh of delight at showing everyone his teammates. Trans: Li Xiaopeng: A good show is about to star! Let's see what it is. Come on, quick! *manical laughter* Great muscles. Wow, what a great bod. Narrator: Yang Wei naturally likes to smile and laugh, so of course he wouldn't miss this opportunity to show himself off. These ugly ducklings have become swans. Even though they're still ugly, they're swans right? No one knows whose idea this was, but only the gymnastics team knows how to put on a show that is not only funny, but extremely professional.
