London 2012 Artistic Gymnastics Men’s Rings: China Might Win It Again

    July 31, 2012

The Olympics are upon us and Google has seen fit to grace us yet again with another Google Doodle celebrating various events throughout the games. Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the Artistic Gymnastics competition, specifically the Men’s Rings category.

Thanks to Google’s Knowledge Graph, we also get to see how the Men’s Rings competition is unfolding. The qualification results are in and its looks like China’s Yibing Chen is leading the pack. Unfortunately, the U.S. did not qualify in the top eight, but our very own Jonathan Horton is in the reserve at number 10.

If you watch the Olympics religiously, you have probably already seen the amazing talent shown in the Men’s Rings competition. It’s an amazingly difficult sport and it’s a sight to behold. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out the Men’s Rings Final on August 6.

While you wait, check out Yibing Chen’s gold medal performance at the Beijing 2008 Olympics games. It’s looking like Chen will win again this year if he can pull off the same kind of amazing performance that he did four years ago.
