For a second consecutive Olympic Games, the Chinese Men's Gymnastics Team takes the gold medal. This feat rivals their performance from the Olympics that took place in Beijing four years ago.
Their final score posted was 275.997, which was a full four points in front of second place Japan. The competition was very close, as only 2.049 points separated Japan and sixth place Russia. Great Britain would end up taking the Bronze.
The event, however, didn't end without some controversy.
The original final results had Japan fourth and Ukraine taking home the bronze. It would have been the first time since 2000 that Japan had failed to medal in the event.
After an inquiry to the judges made by the Japanese coaching staff surrounding the low score of Kohei Uchimura's Pommel Horse trial, the judges came to the conclusion that Uchimura, indeed, was shortchanged, and his score was raised from 13.466 to 14.166.
The decision was enough to disrupt Great Britain and Ukraine's medal celebrations, and effectively knocked the Ukraine from the podium.
Team USA came into the event qualifying first, but stumbled early and often. A botched up vault by John Orozco would stop any momentum that the U.S. was trying to build to make a bronze medal run.
China recorded its ninth gold medal in this event, and leads the U.S. by four gold medals in 2012. China and the U.S. are currently tied with 16 total medals in London.
