I wrote an article about Olympic gymnast Kohei Uchimura in last weekend’s New York Times Magazine. You can read it here. (There’s also a video story to go with it!) It’s a fun piece with quotes from NBC commentators, Olympic judges, and the athlete’s mom.

Uchimura actually screwed up a bit on his pommel horse routine earlier this week. He has another chance to really prove that he’s the greatest gymnast of all time when he hits the mats again on 8/2. Fingers crossed he’ll live up to his Superman reputation!

UPDATE: He *just* won the individual gold in London!!
