    I watched this with my jaw hanging open - it was a fantastic performance! Well worth the Gold - I suspect mens Horizontal Bar gymnasts all over the world are groaning at the grueling challenge he's set for them!

    First time I watched this particular view, I was amazed.....

    Second time I watched it, I was doubly amazed at the sportsmanship shown by the Russian coach, and his gymnasts.... Watch after about 21 seconds.... The reaction to the routine.

    Then watch again at the end. Really nice to see the reactions!

    Yayyyyyy...for the IOC and their all-powerful committee! They really know how to keep everyone involved!

    I shall now wander off, in my Adidas trainers, to have a McDonalds for lunch, with Coca Cola, paid for with my Visa credit card. I shall then go home to watch the rest of the olympics on my Panasonic tv, whilst phoning my family on my Samsung mobile, to tell them ALL how great the IOC is!

    I have edited my original post to include a video alternative for viewing this performance [that should not have any copyright issues in future!]
