Sixth world crown for ‘King Kohei’


GLASGOW: Japanese superstar Kohei Uchimura produced a flawless acrobatic display to win a sixth consecutive men’s all-around title in style at the world gymnastics championships on Friday (Saturday in Manila). The 26-year-old Olympic champion’s daring routine delighted the enthusiastic and at times vocal 9,000-plus crowd in Glasgow’s Hydro Arena. Despite the noise level Uchimura cooly executed on the six apparatus — floor, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar — to take gold ahead of Cuba’s Manrique Larduet with China’s Deng Shudi winning bronze.
