Zou Kai with five OGMs. Is that a record in gymnastics?

I'm going to guess not even close. But definitely rare in recent times, especially considering that he's not even an all-around gymnast.

Yes, each variation of each vault must be included to get that total of 100.

Why the big pause? :confused: Why not do one event right after the other?

Medal ceremony to immediately follow each event. I don't know why they're taking so long to set up those tiny ass podiums though.

Do the different twisting variations of the same entry vault count for this? So yurchenkos could be layout out, .5, full, 1.5, etc?

Probably, which would rocket the number up; there was just a short guide to vault on the BBC. I guess it means there are over 100 different vaults which have been performed and then verified by the FIG.

They wouldn't get the opportunity to showcase their funky 70s laser light display

Totally. Makes me wanna put on my roller skates and headband and bust some funky moves. ;)

IIRC, Larissa Latynina has eighteen Olympic medals, including nine gold.

Nikolai Andrianov has fifteen medals - seven gold medals.

Floor gold to the awesome Li Xiaoshuang (CHN) and a surprise HB gold to USA's Trent Dimas who hit the routine of a lifetime.

Perfection! I remember being so excited. Barcelona was such a great competition from start to finish. The Golden Age.
