RIO DE JANEIRO: Kohei Uchimura survived a challenge to his gymnastics supremacy on Wednesday(Thursday in Manila) sealing a second straight all-around Olympic gold with a daring display of acrobatics. Two days after helping Japan to team gold, the 27-year-old looked to be on the brink of losing his individual title from London 2012. But a dare-devil horizontal bar routine saw him snatch the title ahead of Ukraine’s Oleg Verniaiev, winning by just 0.099. Britain’s Max Whitlock won bronze in the Rio Olympic Arena.
