Sam finished 6th after a lousy high bar.
Uchimura wins an incredible FOURTH AA title! Well done indeed......
about Sam he should still be in position to win an AA medal next year though.
Amazing that Uchimura was the first 3-time world AA winner - now he's got 4. by 2016 he might have 6 along with his second Olympic AA gold medal. I'd say his best of all-time status is now set in stone.

Gutted for Sam...so close to a medal! I'm glad Fabi snuck in for the bronze but still...*cries* At least he was in good spirits.
What more can you say about Uchimura? Rock star.
I'm sad that neither of the Brit boys managed to grab a medal but I must admit I love the podium. Well deserved!
...........and high bar is the only EF for which Sam qualified.
So happy for Sazaki!
And yay for Arthur Nory
Who would have thought that Brazil would get an "almost medal" and a second guy in the all around at MAG.
The ladies on the other hand
Lead me not into temptation. I can find it, and eat it, all by myself.
Sam Mikulak broke my heart in high bar
But still showing a charming smile and good sportmanship congratulating the medal winers, your time will come Sam!!!
And happy the bronze medal end with Hambuechen, the guy has gone through so many lows, injuries, surgeries and to take this medal must mean the world for him
Uchimura is the MASTER, period.

Uchida is still on the recovery from his injury so it was hard for him to keep the forth title in a row. Well done!!

The look on Fabien's face was priceless. After all the hugs and congratulations, he turned away for a moment and you could see him let out this sigh of relief. Yay for him!
One reason I love men's gymnastics is that most of them genuinely look so happy for each other at the end of the individual events regardless of nationality.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
Me too. I think its the maturity level. The other thing I really love is the depth across countries.
Who do you think will get Longiness prize this year? Rodionova?
Who told Mustafina blush sideburns are a good look ?
Iordache actually had a decent UB routine, the battle for the podium will be interesting
